Minnesota closing its state-run COVID testing sites

“We haven’t had phenomenal vaccination rates in Minnesota with the newest booster, the bivalent booster,” said Dr. Hannah Lichtsinn with Hennepin Healthcare. 

In fact, only 15% of eligible Americans have received the latest version of the shot.

“It’s really frustrating because we know that being fully vaccinated is the best protection that people can have against severe illness, hospitalization and death,” said Lichtsinn.
