Minnesotans 65 and over are finding it tricky to get their COVID vaccinations. In the first vaccine lottery for Minnesota seniors 65 and older, more than 200,000 signed up and less than 10,000 have been notified that they were selected to get their vaccine.

Registrations were taken over a 24 hour time period that started last Tuesday. Those selected were picked at random.

If you signed up and were not selected, your name will stay on the pre-registration waitlist for opportunities in the future. This has to be frustrating.

Here is the message sent to those not selected;

“We regret that you were not chosen to receive the COVID-19 vaccine during today’s initial round of random selection. However, there is still a chance that you could be selected if an appointment at your preferred site becomes available. Keep a close watch on your email and/or phone messages through Saturday, January 30, and be sure to respond promptly if you are notified of an opening. If you are not chosen during the second round of random selection, don’t worry; your name will stay on the pre-registration waitlist for future opportunities. You do not need to take any additional action at this time. Thank you for your patience, and for participating in the COVID-19 Vaccine Pilot Program. More opportunities for vaccination will be coming as the state receives more vaccine from the federal government. Visit mn.gov/findmyvaccine to learn more.”

It seems pretty obvious, that things were not being attended to, as far as distribution, supply and just reliable information coming from our nations capitol.
