5 rankings that prove Minnesota is crushing the pandemic

Thanks to Governor Tim Walz’s leadership during the pandemic, Minnesota is winning the fight against COVID-19. 

But you don’t have to take my word for it. 

Check out these five rankings that prove Minnesota is crushing the pandemic:

First in the nation in vaccines administered

Minnesota ranks first in the nation for the percentage of vaccines we’ve administered. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Minnesota has administered 88.55% of the vaccine doses we have received, beating every other state. And we’re not stopping until every Minnesotan who wants a shot gets one.

First in the nation for protecting children during the pandemic

A study from Save the Children shows that out of all 50 states, kids in Minnesota are doing the best overall during the COVID-19 pandemic. Minnesota ranks first in the nation for protecting children from hunger, learning loss, and financial stress during the pandemic.

Best state in the country for women during the pandemic

The pandemic has had an especially harmful impact on women. Many women work in low-wage jobs and many working mothers still bear most of the responsibilities at home. And that’s brought a lot of challenges for women since the pandemic began. But thankfully, in Minnesota, we’re looking out for women. We were named the best state in the country for women during the pandemic with a score of nearly 78 out of 100.

Second best state in America

When it comes to overall quality of life, Minnesota ranks as the second best state in the country. That ranking is based on thousands of data points that measure how well states are performing for their citizens. Even in the midst of a pandemic, we’re doing pretty well overall.

Sixth safest state during COVID-19

Out of all 50 states, Minnesota ranks as the sixth safest during the pandemic. That goes to show that we’ve done a great job at keeping the pandemic under control and getting people vaccinated. 

Share the good news

From the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Walz has listened to the scientists and experts. As a result, we’ve been able to keep the pandemic under control and we’re leading the nation. And if we keep it up, we’ll be able to emerge stronger than before.

We’ve still got a long way to go in our recovery, but this is definitely good news worth sharing. So go ahead and share this blog with your friends and family.
