Since last week, about 30,000 more North Dakotans have received their first doses of their COVID-19 vaccines.

Of the roughly 136,000 doses the state has ordered and received, 135,500 of them have been administered.

According to the state health department’s COVID-19 vaccine dashboard, 11 percent of the state’s eligible residents have received their first dose. That amounts to just over 86,000 people. 5.2 percent of the state’s eligible residents have received both doses, which amounts to just over 38,000 people.

There are currently 400 enrolled provider sites approved to distribute the vaccine statewide.
