Susan Murr of South St. Paul closed her eyes in anticipation of her COVID vaccine from nurse Darcey McCampbell on Jan. 21 in Brooklyn Center.

State officials have earmarked 35,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses for senior citizens this week - the highest total so far - at more than 100 locations, including hospitals, clinics and pharmacies.

The move represents a shift away from reliance on nine state-sponsored community vaccination sites that opened two weeks ago toward established local providers, long the backbone for delivering influenza and other vaccinations.

"The goal here is to improve access closer to home with more COVID-19 vaccines being available," said Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm.
