ST. PAUL -- Minnesota has passed the three million COVID-19 vaccine dose milestone.

Governor Tim Walz says the state has administered more than three million vaccine doses, hitting the milestone exactly three weeks after the state announced two million doses administered on March 18th. The state announced the first million on February 19th.
