Minnesota health officials have asked the public not to visit health care providers for the COVID-19 vaccine unless they have a scheduled appointment as no walk-ins are accepted. On Tuesday, Minnesotans 65 and older crashed a state website that opened to avail a limited supply of vaccines.

During their daily COVID-19 briefing yesterday, state health and technology officials said they are working to make the web system robust to handle the volume.

Minnesota has opened nine pilot sites to administer the vaccine to those 65 and older starting this week. Educators and child care providers are also included in the pilot. The federal government is expected to avail more vaccine supplies to the state.

The nine pilot sites are: Andover, Brooklyn Center, Fergus Falls, Marshall, Mountain Iron, North Mankato, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Thief River Falls.

Appointments are currently fully booked. According to MDH, additional appointments will be made every Tuesday at noon.
