(ABC 6 News) - Changes are coming this week to the Minnesota COVID-19 vaccine pilot program; Minnesotans age 65 and older will now have a 24-hour window to pre-register to be randomly selected to get the vaccine. 

Beginning on Tuesday at 5 a.m., those that wish to get on the list can pre-register and those selected will no longer be on a first come, first serve basis. Registration will be open through Wednesday at 5 a.m. 

If you are unable to register online, you may call 833-431-2053 to sign up. The call center will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 26. 

Appointments are required to receive the shot. The state is asking that people do not show up at the community vaccination pilot clinic if they do not have one, walk-ins are not accepted. 

The first week of the pilot program vaccinated over 13,300 Minnesotans in nine community clinic sites, including one in Rochester. 

During this second week of the pilot program, the state will also be mass vaccinating educators, school staff and child care providers at a Twin Cities location. With over 15,000 vaccines set aside for this group, they will be administered from January 28 through February 1. 

This week, pilot clinics in Blaine and Brooklyn Center will serve only adults 65 years of age and older and the new pop-up clinic at Xcel Energy Center will serve only educators, school staff, and child care providers from the Twin Cities metro.
