Minnesota’s COVID-19 Community Vaccination Program brings easy, free, and safe vaccine opportunities to familiar community settings. 

Appointments are required for children 6 months to 5 years old at the Bloomington (Mall of America) community vaccination site, which is administering the Pfizer vaccine. A limited number of walk-ins and appointments for Minnesotans ages 5 and older are available at the Mall of America. Parent or guardian consent is required for COVID-19 vaccination for people younger than 18 years old. Boosters are also offered to 5-year olds and above. 

To find a vaccination location near you, use the Find Vaccine Locations map.

For State Community Vaccination sites:

  • Children 15 years old and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • 16- and 17-year-olds must receive permission from a parent or guardian, either in person through being accompanied by a parent or guardian, or online beforehand through the appointment scheduling and registration process.
  • Booster doses are available for people 5 years of age and older who are eligible. Families are highly encouraged to join their children and get vaccinated at the same time.

To make an appointment, follow the links below.

Note: Masks are required at all Community Vaccination Program locations.

What to expect at your Community Vaccination Program Appointment

  • Do not arrive for your appointment any earlier than 15 minutes. This is to ensure social distancing.
  • The COVID-19 vaccine is being provided at no cost to you, but please bring your insurance card if you have one. Participants are asked for their health insurance information so the state can bill their insurance company on their behalf. But if you are uninsured, or for any reason insurance does not cover some or all of the cost of your vaccine, the state will cover the difference. Vaccination remains available at no-cost to you. Insurance is not required to receive the vaccine.
  • Plan to sit for at least 15 minutes of observation after you receive your vaccine. If you have allergies, you will need to sit for at least 30 minutes.
