Mapped: COVID-19 vaccines for Minnesota kids 5-11
About one in four Minnesota children ages 5 to 11 are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with rates varying significantly across the state.
- Exceptions include several counties in Northern Minnesota, which have also posted high vaccination numbers for adults.
Why it matters: Months after the shots were approved for the cohort, rates continue to lag those for teens and adults.
By the numbers: In Minnesota, 27% of kids 5-11 have both doses. That's much higher than the national average of 18%.
- Cook and Olmsted counties lead the state for fully vaccinated youngsters. In both areas, more than four in 10 kids have two shots.
- Clearwater (4.4%) and Roseau (5.8%) counties were among the lowest.
