The Latest on the COVID-19 Vaccine
Over 153,300 Minnesotans have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, including more than 31,113 Hennepin County residents. As you may have heard or seen in the news, the vaccine is being administered in phases. Health care workers and long term care residents will be the first to receive it, followed by essential workers, those 65 or older, and those with underlying health conditions. If you’d like to stay updated throughout the vaccine distribution process, our state’s new Vaccine Data Dashboard is a great resource.
2021 DFL House Priorities

You can read more about our initial priorities here.
