North End resident Xia Yang drove the vaccine bus for Metro Transit to Hmongtown Market on Thursday, April 22 for scheduled and walk-up appointments. The vaccine bus is a joint partnership between Metro Transit, Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Minnesota Department of Health. It is staffed by clinicians and Blue Cross Blue Shield staff volunteering for the day, according to Coley Wright. “Vaccine distribution is not as equitable as it should be. Our goal is to make the vaccine equitable by delivering to communities,” she said.
