MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota health officials have reported another 2,387 cases of COVID-19 and 48 deaths. Over 100,000 vaccine doses have been administered so far.

MDH says they have administered a total of 104,226 vaccines, of which 83,369 are from Pfizer, and 20,808 are from Moderna. Notably, MDH only tabulates the numbers they are in charge of, since some vaccines were given to other places to administer.

Figures in the Dial Back dashboard shows an uptick in cases as the holiday season comes a close.
