Beltrami Public Health to focus efforts on essential workers

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
  • manufacturers
  • 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.
