South Dakota becomes leading example of vaccine distribution

South Dakotaa state that weathered months of criticism from the media and Democrats for how it handled the COVID-19 epidemic, has become a model for vaccine distribution while other states struggle.

According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, South Dakota is the third-most successful state in administering its provided coronavirus vaccines, following West Virginia and neighboring North Dakota. South Dakota has given 5.73 doses per 1,000 people, for a total of 51,000 total doses administered.

In comparison, states with some of the harshest COVID-19 lockdown policies are significantly lagging behind. California has administered just 2.26 doses per 1,000 people (less than half of South Dakota), while Minnesota has given 2.93 doses per 1,000 people.
