Minnesota Ready to Vaccinate 12-15-Year-Olds
Families can now get ready to make an appointment for children age 12-15 once the covid-19 vaccine is available for this age group. Once CDC immunization guidance is issued, Minnesotans age 12 to 15 should be able to get vaccinated at locations where Pfizer vaccines are available. Parent or guardian consent is required for COVID-19 vaccination for people younger than 18 years old.
There are a number of ways to get a Pfizer vaccine:
Vaccine Connector: You can directly sign up for an appointment at one of the state Community Vaccination Program locations at VaccineConnector.mn.gov.
Walk-ins for Minnesotans 12+ will be accepted at state community vaccination sites administering Pfizer vaccines in Bloomington (Mall of America), Saint Paul (Roy Wilkins Auditorium), Lino Lakes and Oakdale.
Vaccine Locator Map: You can use the Vaccine Locator Map to search for providers who are offering COVID-19 vaccine to Minnesotans ages 12 and older at https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/find-vaccine/locations/index.jsp .
Vaccine Finder: You can also find COVID-19 vaccine appointments at Vaccines.gov, which allows you to filter by vaccine manufacturer and search for only Pfizer vaccine appointments.
Health Care Provider: You can also contact your child’s primary health care provider, local public health department, or a local pharmacy.
