It’s expected state officials early this week will outline their plan for rolling out COVID vaccinations in Minnesota, with health care workers and nursing homes getting first priority. Governor Tim Walz says:

“I just want to let Minnesotans know that, as we go down that list of prioritizations, this is going to take some time. I mean, you’re talking about, even in Minnesota with a two-dose regimen, that’s over 11 million doses.”

Other groups, including emergency responders and some state lawmakers, are also requesting priority.
