What if someone gets the vaccine who is not on the priority list?

We want to follow the prioritization guidance as closely as we can because this ensures that everyone will be vaccinated in a timely manner based on vaccine distributions we receive. It allows for vaccination to occur smoothly, so we do not run out of vaccine for those groups who are at highest risk within each phase. If a person is vaccinated outside of the priority list, we will count that dose, however, to best ensure we meet the needs of the entire public in an efficient manner we must follow the established MDHHS prioritization guidance the best we can.
