Some Minnesotans are shopping for the COVID-19 vaccine they want

Kirk Randall, a nurse with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, filled a syringe with a dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on March 9.

Curt and Patti Kaler were happy when they reached the end of their appointment-booking process for a COVID-19 vaccine and discovered they were getting the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine - the one they wanted.

"For us, not having to commute a second time was a bonus," Curt Kaler said from the road last week, midway through his three-hour trip from the Kalers' Lakeville home to a Walmart pharmacy in Marshall.

Other Minnesotans are starting to shop more selectively, as President Joe Biden recently pledged to make all U.S. adults eligible for a vaccine by May 1.
