Governor Lays Out Projected Timeline for COVID-19 Vaccinations

At a press conference this afternoon, Gov. Tim Walz laid out the timeline for the anticipated rate of getting Minnesotans vaccinated.

The state is still in the first phase of vaccinations, having inoculated heath care personnel, long-term care facility residents, educators, child care providers and those over the age of 65. The current plan is to get at least 70 percent of those 65 years of age or older vaccinated before moving on the next phase.

In April, those with specific high-risk health conditions and targeted essential workers will be the next to be mass-vaccinated.

In April and May, people aged 45 to 64 with one or more high-risk medical condition, people ages 18 to 44 with two or more high risk medical conditions, essential frontline workers and people age 50 or older living in multi-generational housing will get to the front of the line.

In May and June, people 18 and older with any underlying medical condition and those age 50-64 regardless of health condition will be next.

Finally, in the summer months the general public that hasn’t been covered under the previous vaccine case groups will get vaccinated.

Walz said he is looking forward to returning to the Minnesota State Fair and walking down the street eating a corndog. Under this timeline, the Great Minnesota Get-Together may be on track to return after a one-year hiatus.
