Feb 2, 2021

The immunization program coordinator with the North Dakota Department of Health is pleased with how the state’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout is progressing.

Molly Howell says in most areas of the state, residents aged 75 and older or 65 and older with two or more underlying health conditions are currently eligible to be vaccinated. But she says a site locator on the vaccine website can show not only where to get vaccinated, but which groups are currently being vaccinated in that area.
