COVID-19 vaccinations underway at the City

Authored on
Bloomington Briefing Published March 1, 2021

In January, nurses from Bloomington Public Health began vaccinating emergency medical responders, emergency medical technicians and paramedics for Bloomington, Edina and Richfield. The first responders included firefighters and police officers who are at high risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. They were prioritized within the first phase of the vaccine rollout. Because there are limited doses of vaccine available, the COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed in phases.

The goal for the first, limited doses of COVID-19 vaccine is to immunize for impact. This means offering vaccine to those at highest risk of getting COVID-19, and those most at risk of severe disease and complications if they get COVID-19. All Minnesotans will eventually have access to the vaccine. 

“We anticipate running clinics for the next several months on a regular, routine basis to get our different priority populations vaccinated,” Acting Public Health Administrator Nick Kelley said. “We can’t let our guard down. We have a few more months of hard work, making sure that we’re making the good choices to keep ourselves, our family members, and our community safe while we work to get vaccine out into the community so that it can protect everybody.”
