Minnesotans can now book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at one of the state’s large-scale community vaccination sites directly.

Before the Monday announcement from Gov. Tim Walz’s office, Minnesotans would sign up on the state’s vaccine connector and wait to be notified about openings.

As the state’s vaccine efforts ramp up and with demand for shots having likely peaked, appointments can now be scheduled directly on the Vaccine Connector. If all appointments are full, patients can still ask to be notified when one becomes available.

State vaccine sites are currently located in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Mankato, Duluth, Rochester, Bloomington, Oakdale, Lino Lakes and St. Cloud. There is also a federally-supported location at the State Fairgrounds available to residents of “vulnerable” zip codes in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

“To end this pandemic, we need as many Minnesotans vaccinated as possible, as quickly as possible. To drive that goal, Minnesotans can now book appointments at our Community Vaccination locations directly and at their convenience,” Walz said in a statement.

“The sooner we get shots in arms, the sooner we can get back to the things we love and the people we miss. Hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans have been able to find their COVID-19 vaccine through the Vaccine Connector, and today, that is easier than ever.”

As of Monday, Minnesota had administered more than 4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with more than 56% of the state’s age-16 plus population and 85% of the age-65 plus population having received at least one dose.

Almost one-third of Minnesotans have completed the vaccine series.

Minnesotans can also make a vaccine appointment by contacting their healthcare provider or a local pharmacy.
