As of June 30, 2021, COVID-19 vaccination rates in Minnesota among those ages 16 or older remain below the state’s goal of reaching 70% by July 1. As accessibility and eligibility have expanded over the spring and early summer, leaders are now focusing more and more on addressing COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy.
KFAI’s Ryan Dawes spoke with Minnesotans along West Broadway in North Minneapolis to hear their stance on the COVID-19 vaccine, asking whether or not they got their dose(s) and what contributed to this decision. We also hear how or if the pandemic is still affecting these Minnesotans.
