COVID-19 Community Vaccination Program

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

To make an appointment, follow the links below and select your preferred location. 

Walk-ins are now welcome!

Walk-ins for Minnesotans age 16 years and older will be accepted at state community vaccination sites in Bloomington (Mall of America), Saint Paul (Roy Wilkins Auditorium), Lino Lakes and Oakdale. Walk-ins for Minnesotans age 18 years and older will be accepted at Mankato, Duluth, Rochester and St. Cloud. The federally-supported State Fairgrounds site is not accepting walk-ins at this time as it is currently administering second doses. Parental/guardian consent required for 16- and 17-year-olds.

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.
