State announces COVID-19 shots available for all | #healthcare | #elderly | #seniors

Gov. Kristi Noem announced Wednesday that the state will open COVID-19 vaccinations next week to any South Dakotan over the age of 16.

The move, she said via an announcement on Twitter, marks the start of South Dakota’s second phase of vaccine delivery, starting Monday.

“While this is a big announcement, I also want to thank all of those who have been in the fight against this virus since day-one,” she said, singling out hospitals, health care workers and the Department of Health for their leadership on the pandemic.

South Dakota joins a growing list of states that have opened vaccinations to the general public. The state currently ranks second in the nation for having the most per-capita adults vaccinated, behind New Mexico. About 46% of the state’s adults 18 and older have received at least one dose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
