COVID-19 vaccine eligibility is now open for additional groups, such as those with certain medical conditions, essential frontline workers, and people age 50 and older who live in multi-generational housing.
Beltrami County Public Health director Cynthia Borgen says her department will focus on efforts for essential workers in:
- agriculture and in airports
- now-eligible child care workers
- first responders and correctional staff
- those who work in food production, retail or service
- judicial system workers
- public transit
- US Post Office employees
Public Health is working with employers to identify those who would like to receive a vaccine.
Those in these groups who have not been notified of employer involvement can call Beltrami Public Health at 333-8140 to schedule an appointment or be placed on an eligibility list.
