From the St. Paul Public Housing Agency's newsletter:

Saint Paul-Ramsey County Public Health (Public Health) staff contacted the PHA in January to express interest in hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics at all PHA sites where there are state-licensed assisted living programs (Valley, Ravoux and Hamline Hi-Rises).  Staff worked closely with Public Health to finalize the logistics of educating residents and staff on the vaccine, distributing registration information in multiple languages, conducting resident and staff sign up, doing site preparation, and deciding how to effectively move individuals through the vaccination process in a manner that complied with Stay Safe Minnesota’s social distancing and event capacity requirements.

On Friday, February 12, 2021, the PHA hosted its first COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Valley Hi Rise.  Public Health staff were on hand to administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, with first priority going to all residents living at Valley Hi-Rise, and second priority going to essential PHA employees.

On Thursday, March 5, 2021, the PHA hosted a second COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic; this time at Hamline Hi-Rise.  At this event, first priority went Hamline Hi-Rise residents and assisted living caregivers, and second priority went to essential PHA employees.  A third COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is scheduled for March 17 at Ravoux Hi-Rise.  Staff are also actively working with Public Health staff to bring clinics to the remaining thirteen PHA hi-rises and four family sites.
