Vaccine distribution continues in ND

Mar 1, 2021

Over the last week, 23,355 more doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been delivered to North Dakota.

According to the state health department’s COVID-19 vaccine dashboard, 214,480 total doses have been received. But 224,184 total doses have been administered.

Immunization program manager Molly Howell has said this discrepancy is due to “official” doses of vaccine in each vial being conservative estimates; more doses can usually be found in many vials.

In the last week, another 21,404 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in North Dakota.

By now, just over 111,000 residents have received their first dose, which amounts to just over 15 percent of the total population. Over 60,000 residents are covered by two doses – that amounts to just over 8 percent.

In all, over 185,000 doses of vaccine have been administered in the state. Just over 191,000 doses have been received.

There are currently 405 enrolled provider sites approved to distribute vaccine statewide.

Allocation of COVID-19 vaccines in North Dakota are set to increase next week, creating more opportunity for more residents to get their shots.

Molly Howell is immunization program manager with the state health department. She says Thrifty White Pharmacies in North Dakota will begin receiving about 2,300 doses of vaccine every week, which will increase the number of vaccine allocation locations. And she says more doses will be made available for other sites as well.

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.

ND health dept: vaccine administration is top priority

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.
