State to open COVID vaccine site at MSP Terminal 2

The vaccine site will be open to both travelers and non-travelers.

Visitors to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport can receive a free COVID-19 vaccine whether they are traveling or not, Gov. Tim Walz announced Wednesday.

As part of the state’s ongoing vaccination efforts, a pop-up vaccine site will open Thursday at Terminal 2 of MSP. The site is located before security, so those departing, returning or picking up someone else can receive a vaccine.

The vaccination site is open to anyone 18 years or older and is open every day from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires one dose.

A vaccine site at Terminal 1, which is only open to passengers with a boarding pass and MSP staff, also opened last Saturday.

“All eligible Minnesotans can now get fully vaccinated at the airport, without going through security,” Walz said in a statement.

“The Johnson & Johnson vaccine offered at the airport is just a single dose, so you can now protect yourself from COVID-19 in one stop while you catch your flight, or wait for your loved one to land. We are working hard to offer these safe and effective vaccines to every Minnesotan who wants them, and we are proud to offer options as convenient as this one for travelers and non-travelers alike.”

As of Monday, the state reported that 2,972,489 people, or 53% of the total population, have received at least one dose of the vaccine, while 2,680,652 people, or 48% of the total population, have completed their vaccine series.

The state’s community vaccination program is responsible for administering 600,006 doses, according to a Wednesday release.

Other state vaccine sites are located in Duluth, Rochester, Mall of America, St. Paul, St. Cloud, Mankato and Oakdale.
