This is not the time to take our foot off the gas. COVID-19 vaccination rates are stalling. While 39% of all Cass County residents have been vaccinated, in Moorhead that number drops to 23%.

At this rate, we'll never reach herd immunity, which will give rise to new strains of COVID-19 that even vaccinated people will not be immune to.

Please don't let this be about politics or inconvenience. Get your darn vaccine.
