Public Health staff are getting out into the community to have important conversations with residents about COVID-19 vaccines. While door knocking at the Southgate Apartments, one of many mobile vaccination sites in Bloomington, staff’s efforts tripled the number of vaccines administered that day, from four appointments booked at the beginning of the clinic, to a total of 13 doses being administered. Each vaccination helps contribute to the State’s goal of 70% of Minnesotans vaccinated.
To date, Public Health staff have knocked on more than 750 doors, engaging in conversations about the vaccines, informing families where children 12 years and older can get vaccinated, and celebrating people who had already been vaccinated.
