Walz announces Minnesota's 8th permanent vaccination site will be in Oakdale

It's the 4th site in the Twin Cities.

Gov. Tim Walz has announced that Minnesota's 8th permanent community vaccination site will open this week in Oakdale.

The site will be located at Inwood Oaks event center, and will become the fourth permanent site in the Twin Cities, and the second in the east metro.

Minnesota's seven other large-scale vaccination sites are at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, the Mall of America in Bloomington, and in Duluth, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Mankato.

The Oakdale site will be administering the two-shot Pfizer vaccine

“Across the state, we continue to build an expansive network to bring vaccines directly to Minnesotans in their communities. Our Community Vaccine Program remains a key component of this life-saving network,” said Governor Walz. “The Community Vaccination sites are getting shots into arms safely and efficiently, and this new location will help us reach more Minnesotans 16 years and up.”

All Minnesotans over the age of 16 are eligible to receive a vaccine now after the state expanded its availability on Tuesday.
