Minnesota health care providers question COVID-19 vaccine allocations
December 23, 2020
Some Minnesota health care providers large and small are questioning the allocation of the first COVID-19 vaccine doses in the state, especially for high-risk health care workers.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester said its 2,300-dose shipment last week would only be enough for 6% of its front-line health care workers.
"We need to make sure that our staff receives the doses that they need," said Dr. Amy Williams, executive dean of Mayo Clinic Practice. "We have voiced our concerns and we hope that this will be addressed in a way that enables our staff to be vaccinated at the same pace as other health care workers in the state."
