The State of Minnesota has added Hy-Vee pharmacies to its growing COVID-19 vaccine pharmacy network, giving Minnesotans another place to get their shots.
Gov. Tim Walz on Monday announced Hy-Vee will administer more than 10,000 doses to Minnesotans who are 65 years and older this week at more than 30 Hy-Vees in the state.
“We’re working to mobilize every opportunity we have to get our Minnesota seniors vaccinated as quickly and safely as possible,” Gov. Walz said in a statement. “Today we’re expanding our options for how Minnesotans can get vaccinated and while supply remains frustratingly limited, we will keep working relentlessly to build our provider network and get shots into arms of our most vulnerable populations.”
Appointments at Hy-Vee will be available in the "coming days," a news release said. Locations and contact information for scheduling appointments will be accessible on the state's Vaccine Locator map. You can also attempt to book here, via the Hy-Vee website.
Those 65 and older who are signed up for the Vaccine Connector will also be notified.
Hy-Vee joins Walmart and Thrifty White on the state's list of retail pharmacies in Minnesota that are part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.
