Minnesota pharmacies ask to be included in COVID-19 vaccine rollout


January 21, 2021


Plymouth police Sgt. Heath Bird received his COVID-19 vaccine from RN Gloria Christensen with other first responders Jan. 8.

Minnesota pharmacies and health care providers are asking to be tapped to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine as residents clamor for a coveted appointment at one of just nine administration sites scattered across the state.

"Pharmacies are eager to administer the COVID vaccine," said Sarah Derr, executive director of the Minnesota Pharmacists Association, who told a Minnesota Senate health committee Wednesday that nearly 560 pharmacies have registered to be vaccine providers.

"Pharmacies are currently a little frustrated as they have not heard of any plans ... in contrast to pharmacies in other parts of the country," she said.
