Wondering when you may be able to get your COVID-19 vaccine? Here's a chart from the State of Minnesota that lays it all out.

As more vaccine arrives in The land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota is laying out a path to vaccinate all Minnesotans. Governor Tim Walz announced yesterday that Minnesota will vaccinate at least 70% of Minnesotans age 65 years and older before expanding eligibility to other groups, and aims to reach the 70% goal by the end of March.

Once 70% of the state’s seniors have received the vaccine, Minnesota will expand eligibility based on underlying health conditions and workplace exposure risk. According to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, the state will move forward with phases of vaccine eligibility based on science, medical evidence, and federal guidance.

Who can get their vaccine now?

  • Minnesotans aged 65 or older
  • Health care workers at health care facilities in Minnesota
  • Long-term care residents and staff members at long-term care facilities in Minnesota
  • Pre-kindergarten through Adult Basic and Community Education school staff members, or contracted school staff members, at schools in Minnesota
  • Child care staff members at licensed and certified child care centers or programs in Minnesota

As vaccine supply increases, it will become easier than ever to get a shot. Until then, it’s important to take easy steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear your mask, stay 6 feet away from others, wash your hands, and get a COVID-19 test if you need one. When it’s your turn, get your vaccine. After you’ve had your shot, continue following these safe practices to protect your neighbors while they wait for their vaccine.

It looks like I will be a 'Summer' guy when it comes to getting a vaccine. Stay healthy my friend.
