Ron Tupy of Apple Valley received his shot of COVID vaccine from registered nurse Darcey McCampbell Thursday at a test clinic site in Brooklyn Center.

At least 206,000 Minnesota seniors signed up for the state's COVID-19 vaccine lottery Tuesday, although it could take several weeks before most of them get shots.

There are only 8,000 doses set aside for those 65 and older this week at the state's nine community vaccination clinics.

On Monday, state officials announced a vaccine lottery after the online appointment system last week was quickly overwhelmed by those hoping to snag a slot.
