Walz to soon announce new COVID-19 vaccine priority groups
February 24, 2021
Minnesotans with pre-existing health conditions and workers in essential industries should soon learn when it will be their turn to get the COVID-19 vaccine, Minnesota officials said Tuesday.
A decision could come within a week after state officials make final decisions about the next phase of the rollout, Gov. Tim Walz said.
On deck are around 430,000 workers in essential industries who so far have not been eligible for the vaccine, including those in manufacturing, grocery stores, agriculture, public transit and the postal service.
