“We have 11-hundred providers and sites across the state ready to go.”

Governor Tim Walz calls it “an exciting day” now that kids ages 5- to 11 are eligible for the COVID 19 vaccine. He says appointments are already filling fast. The state has launched a new webpage–mn.gov/vaxforkids–to help parents find vaccination sites for scheduling appointments. Walz says there are over 500,000 children across Minnesota that are now eligible for the vaccine.
