EXCERPT: “Minnesotans who keep tabs on friends and family in other states might have noticed something lately: their aunt in Texas, their friend’s mom in Florida or their childhood friend who’s a cop in South Dakota — none of whom would be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Minnesota right now — are posting on social media about already having gotten their shots. States’ different plans for vaccinating residents against the novel coronavirus have caused some confusion about whether some states are ahead of others in the effort to vaccinate their populations. Some states are ahead of others in per capita terms, but states’ eligibility guidelines are also different, which means they differ not just in how many people have been vaccinated, but who has been vaccinated. Minnesota falls in the middle as far as the number of vaccines administered based on population.
