COVID-19 vaccine available for those who still need or want it

COVID-19 vaccinations are widely available in South Dakota, but the pace of those getting shots has slowed down.

State Health Department Secretary Kim Malsam-Rysdon says a majority of the state eligible population has gotten at least one dose.

Malsam-Rysdon says they have enough vaccine for anyone that wants it.

Malsam-Rysdon says kids twelve and over should also get the shots before school starts.

Just more than fifty-one percent of the state’s eligible population has completed the two-shot series. State health officials are still hoping to get that number to seventy-percent later this year.
