Lt. Governor Flanagan gave a COVID-19 vaccine briefing to Minnesotans. She outlined the three principles that will guide our distribution of the vaccine: Immunize for impact: Maximize immediate health benefit, reduce death, and minimize the harm created by COVID-19 by starting with those most susceptible to serious complications and those who care for them. Equitable distribution and access: Make sure no procedural or structural issues impact access to the vaccine among any particular group or population. And help ensure Minnesotans in every corner and every community know they can trust the process, the safety, and the effectiveness of the vaccine. Transparency: Share information as quickly as possible with Minnesotans.
