Governor Tim Walz announced that more than 35,000 Minnesotans age 65-plus will have access to COVID-19 vaccines at over 100 clinics, hospitals, state community vaccination sites, and other locations across the state this week. It comes in the wake of a successful two-week pilot to test the concept of community vaccination clinics.

“What I would tell you the research is solid. We now have a pretty broad spectrum of millions of people who have taken this all ethnic groups of all ages. And we’re seeing very little…some reaction some people get it with a flu vaccine or tetanus.”

Walz also announced an online vaccine finder to better connect Minnesotans age 65-plus to vaccination opportunities in communities near where they live.
