According to the health department’s COVID-19 vaccine dashboard, nearly 262,000 total doses have been administered in the state. More than 157,700 North Dakotans are covered by one dose of vaccine, which amounts to 21.3 percent. Nearly 85,300 residents are covered by two doses of vaccine, which amounts to 11.6 percent.

There are currently 405 enrolled provider states approved to administer vaccine statewide.
