COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution
We are encouraged by the level of interest in our community related to COVID-19 vaccine and would like to clarify a number of questions we continue to receive:
- As an enrolled provider for COVID-19 vaccine, we are expected to, and will follow, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) recommendations and guidance related to distribution of the vaccine. We are working with our community partners to strategically vaccinate our community in an ethical and efficient manner.
- Currently, COVID-19 vaccine is being administered to priority groups included in Phase 1A, which includes healthcare workers and long-term care residents. We are hopeful vaccine will become more readily available, making additional priority groups eligible to receive vaccine.
- A timeline for when all Minnesotans will have access to the vaccine is unknown. In the meantime, you can act now by getting your flu shot if you haven’t already, be patient as priority groups are vaccinated, and continue to practice preventative habits such as wearing a mask, staying 6 feet from others, washing your hands often and staying home if sick.
As additional priority groups become eligible for vaccination, we will share those details with our community through local media, our social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and our website: www.co.norman.mn.us/COVID19
We greatly appreciate the communities' patience and support as we work through this process!
