ST. PAUL, MN-- The Minnesota State Fairgrounds is the next big stage to host a mass vaccination site.
“We’ve been pushing for a federal vaccination site, and I’m grateful the Biden-Harris Administration delivered on my request,” said Governor Walz.
Starting April 14, Minnesotans living in the highest Social Vulnerability Index zip codes near the Fairgrounds will be served the vaccine, by appointment only.
Those 16 years of age and older who live in the following zip codes in Ramsey and Hennepin County can book their appointments:
55454, 55103, 55130, 55411, 55404, 55117, 55428, 55119, 55107, 55106, 55407, 55430, 55412, 55102, 55429, 55421, 55104, 55114, 55432, 55118, 55420, 55413, 55402, 55109, 55406, 55423, 55415, 55405, 55408, 55425, 55112, 55111, 55403, 55101, 55344, 55435, 55113, 55458.
The site will receive 168,000 doses of both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The site will be allocated 3,000 doses per day, seven days a week, for eight weeks.
“We’re proud to work with the whole federal family, and the state of Minnesota, to open this federal vaccination site at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The site will greatly expand and expedite vaccine to the most underserved and vulnerable populations,” said Kevin M. Sligh, acting regional administrator, FEMA Region 5. “This site will provide 3,000 doses a day of the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals in historically underserved communities, a significant step toward ending the pandemic for Minnesotans and the nation.”
Minnesotans can call the Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 Public Hotline at 1-833-431-2053 for language assistance and any questions about signing up for the Connector.
It does not cost Minnesotans anything to get the vaccine and they do not not need to provide an ID or medical insurance to be vaccinated.
This site is in addition to Minnesota’s regular statewide vaccine allocations.
