[ST. PAUL, MN] – Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan yesterday received her second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine through White Earth Nation’s urban office.
“When I received my second dose of the Moderna vaccine at the White Earth Urban Office, I held my brother Ron’s pocket watch to honor his memory and all those we have lost to COVID-19. As we see more and more Minnesotans getting vaccinated, we are getting closer and closer to ending the pandemic. White Earth has done a tremendous job vaccinating folks from the tribe, but also from across the region and surrounding communities,” said Lieutenant Governor Flanagan. “We are trying to remove as many barriers as possible so that every Minnesotan can access the vaccine. Through our partnerships with community, the Vaccine Connector – now translated into Spanish, Somali, and Hmong – and the new FEMA vaccination site at the State Fair grounds, we are getting closer and closer to reaching every Minnesotan.”
