Minnesota health systems to identify at-risk patients for next round of COVID-19 shots

Medical assistant Angela Figueroa was vaccinated against COVID-19 on Feb. 5 at the United Family Medicine clinic in St. Paul.

People with health conditions that make them susceptible to COVID-19 complications most likely will be contacted by their health care provider when it's their turn to get the shot.

"We'll use our electronic medical record as well the expertise of our clinicians to help identify patients," said Dr. John Misa, interim chief medical officer for the Allina Health Group.

Once 70% of the state's seniors are vaccinated, perhaps by the end of March, the state's rollout plan calls for the medically vulnerable and essential workers to become the next priority groups.
