DULUTH, Minn.- The severe winter weather across other parts of the country has once again delayed COVID vaccine appointments at the DECC and other sites in the state Sunday.

So MDH has had to postpone appointments to the DECC and Mayo Civic Center sites for Sunday.
According to the spokesperson, as of yesterday all impacted patients have been notified about the postponements.
