This week celebrated ONE year since we've hosted the Statewide Conversations on MN's COVID-19 response with MN Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan.  She made a committment to join us each week, or find a state official each week so that citizens in Minnesota had a chance to ask question. 

This week our conversation included outbreaks in the state, vaccine availability and listener questions about mask mandates, employers and mental health. 

On this week's Statewide Conversation with Minnesota’s state officials on COVID-19, Heidi Holtan welcomed MDH Director of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Prevention, and Control Division – Kris Ehresmann. 

Every week this is an opportunity to ask questions about Minnesota’s response and plans during the current COVID-19 pandemic.  This week, update on vaccine distribution, and advice for the upcoming Easter weekend.  Since up for the vaccine connector through the state of Minnsota. 

This week we checked in with local health care providers in northern Minnesota about the vaccine rollouts. We talked with Grand Itasca Clinic and Hospital's Jon Pederson - Interim Director of Operations and Tyler Waller, PharmD and director of Pharmacy.

They helped us understand how many vaccines are available to what communities, how they are stored, potential side effects and which vaccines they are using.
