More than 35,000 Minnesotans age 65-plus are gaining potential access to COVID-19 vaccines at over 100 places statewide. It comes in the wake of a successful two-week pilot to test the concept of community vaccination clinics.

“The goal here is to improve access closer to home with more COVID-19 vaccines being available at clinics, hospitals, community vaccination sites and other locations across the state this week.”

Minnesota Health Department (MDH) Commissioner Jan Malcolm says there’s also a new online vaccine finder to better connect elderly Minnesotans to vaccination opportunities in communities near where they live. More information is available at the MDH’s website.
