All Minnesotans 12 years of age and older now eligible for vaccine
Minnesotans age 12 to 17 are eligible only for the Pfizer vaccine.
On May 10, Governor Walz announced that Minnesota is ready to vaccinate 12 to 15 year olds this week as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorizes the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for that age group. Minnesotans age 12 to 15 can get vaccinated at locations where Pfizer vaccines are available. Sign up on the Vaccine Connector to make an appointment at one of the state Community Vaccination Program locations. (Walk-ins for Minnesotans 12+ will be accepted at state community vaccination sites administering Pfizer vaccines in Bloomington (Mall of America), Saint Paul (Roy Wilkins Auditorium), Lino Lakes and Oakdale.)
Governor Walz announced that Minnesota will wind down its mass vaccination sites
Governor Walz has announced that Minnesota will wind down its mass vaccination sites while continuing efforts to make vaccines accessible with smaller community vaccination sites. With the exception of the Mall of America location, final doses will be administered at Community Vaccination Program mass vaccination sites on or before August 7. (Minnesotans who get their shot July 1 through August 7 at MSP Airport’s Terminal 2 will be entered into a weekly drawing for a $500 travel voucher through Sun Country Airlines.) Minnesotans who have not received their vaccine are still encouraged to get one at their pharmacy or primary care provider.
Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector
Governor Walz announced the launch of the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, a tool that helps all Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get their COVID-19 vaccine. When a Minnesotan becomes eligible to receive a vaccine under state guidelines, the Vaccine Connector will:
- Alert them when they're eligible.
- Connect them to appointment scheduling resources.
- Notify them of vaccination opportunities in their area.
There will be no cost and no restricted time period for signing up. Minnesotans unable to sign up online can call 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone. Translation service is available by phone
We must continue to wear masks, socially distance, wash our hands frequently and stay home if we are sick to make sure as few people as possible get COVID-19 until a vaccine is widely available.
The tools below are intended to help Minnesotans connect with vaccine providers, view key vaccination data for our state, and learn more about the state's vaccine distribution plan.
- Minnesota’s new COVID-19 vaccine locator map connects people age 65+ to vaccination opportunities. There is still a limited amount of vaccine, so appointments may not be available everywhere.
- The State of Minnesota has launched a public vaccine data dashboard to detail the progress of COVID-19 vaccine allocation, distribution, and administration across Minnesota.
