A new website from the Minnesota Department of Health provides for the first time a view of where vaccines for COVID-19 are being distributed and administered around the state. 

The "COVID-19 Vaccine Data" dashboard went live Tuesday morning, and it shows how many people from all 87 Minnesota counties have received at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. 

Data reported as of Jan. 9 shows that the CDC has so far allocated 541,100 doses to Minnesota. Of those, 329,450 doses have been shipped Minnesota healthcare providers and 100,500 doses have been shipped to pharmacy chains that are in charge of administering doses at long-term care facilities

Through Jan. 9, here's how many doses have been administered: 

  • Minnesotans who have received at least 1 dose of a vaccine: 144,503
  • Minnesotans who have completed 2 doses of vaccine: 7,392

Both vaccines require 2 doses, with 21 days between doses for the Pfizer vaccine and 28 days between doses for Moderna's vaccine. 

The three pharmacy chains in charge of administering vaccine at long-term care facilities in Minnesota are CVS, Walgreens and Thrifty White. 

Not all data will be completely up-to-date because all healthcare providers administering vaccine through the State of Minnesota have 24 hours to report updates, while pharmacies have 72 hours to report.

It's also important to note that the 541,100 doses so far allocated to Minnesota may be an undercount because the CDC doesn't reveal how many doses have been distributed directly to federal agencies like Veteran’s Affairs, Indian Health Services, Bureau of Prisons, and the Department of Defense. 

The dashboard is interactive, so it allows you to scroll over every county to see how many doses have been given compared to the county's population. It also breaks down how many doses have been administered by age and gender.
