Researchers still don't know how long immunity protection will last with the COVID-19 vaccines.

As Minnesota health care centers prepare to receive boxes with COVID-19 vaccine vials packed in dry ice, some questions remain about who should get the shots as well as the vaccine's long-term effects.

Children, pregnant women and mothers who breastfeed will not be vaccinated in the initial waves because safety and efficacy studies are not yet complete.

In Minnesota, everyone who gets the two-dose vaccine will be given a card that will prove that they are inoculated, but researchers still don't know how long immunity protection will last.
