Storm damage at the Minnesota Vikings' TCO Performance Center in Eagan has forced the postponement of COVID-19 vaccinations on Wednesday.
The facility is currently hosting a temporary large-scale vaccination event, but damage taken from this week's storms has forced the site's temporary closure.
Minnesota's State Emergency Operations Center initially told Bring Me The News that the closure would result in the postponement of all remaining vaccination postponements at the facility this week, but it later issued a correction saying that the closure would affect Wednesday appointments only.
"The state is working around the clock to identify an alternate location and will contact impacted patients directly to provide an opportunity to reschedule their appointments as soon as possible," a spokesperson said.
It's not been revealed at this stage what damage the building sustained due to the weather, which saw thunderstorms move through the Twin Cities metro Monday night, with heavy rain following on Tuesday.
The TCO Performance Center is hosting its second mass vaccination event in the past month, with the state seeking to get as many people as possible vaccinated against COVID-19 as the supply of doses from the federal government ramps up.
It was announced this week that a new, FEMA-supported vaccination will be launched at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.
