North Dakota is vaccinating residents against COVID-19 in Stage 2 beginning today, which includes the general public aged 16 and above.

The state health department says residents in Stage 1 priority groups can still get their shots if they haven’t yet already.

According to the state health department’s COVID-19 vaccine dashboard, nearly 366,000 official doses of vaccine have been received in the state. Just under 389,000 doses have been administered. Some vials of vaccine delivered to North Dakota have had conservative estimates of total doses in them.

227,599 residents have received a first dose of vaccine, which amounts to just over 39 percent of the state’s population. 147,095 residents are up to date on their coverage, which amounts to just over 25 percent.

Three vaccines are currently available: Pfizer and Moderna, which requires two doses; and Johnson and Johnson, which requires one dose.

There are 405 enrolled provider sites approved to administer vaccine statewide.
