MN Vaccination Providers Given More Flexibility to Offer COVID-19 Shots
The Minnesota Department of Health has given hospitals, health care systems, and other vaccination providers a bit more flexibility to provide coronavirus shots to a broader portion of the population. The includes Minnesotans 65 and older and younger people with certain health problems.
Health commissioner Jan Malcolm said it’s a limited step that’s meant to free up providers that have made good progress with vaccinating the top priority groups. They’ll be able to use their remaining “small numbers of doses” on other vulnerable people.
Malcolm says an announcement about expanding eligibility beyond the first priority groups will be coming in a few days.
