Mall of America Being Turned into Community COVID Vaccination Site
There are many community vaccination sites across Minnesota now where you can get the Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. Now another community vaccination site is being added to the list. Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced that the Mall of America is being turned into a community vaccination site.
I saw the announcement from Governor Walz on his Facebook page. In his post, he says that at the new MOA community vaccination site, within the first week, "8,000+ educators and child care workers will be able to get vaccinated." The site is set to open this week. KAAL writes that Governor Walz also said that this new site at the Mall of America "'expands the network to give more Minnesotans access to shots in their communities.'”
Speaking of the COVID vaccine, have you heard about the Vaccine Connector program that Minnesota launched just a few weeks ago? If you haven't signed up, you can do so HERE. What it is, is basically a notification system for when you're eligible for the COVID vaccine. So you sign up and then when you become eligible they send you a text and/or email letting you know. They also provide resources so you know where to go to sign up for an appointment.
If you're still unsure of if you want to get the COVID vaccine or if you have any questions, below are the answers to the 30 most common questions about the COVID vaccine. Hopefully they're able to provide answers to the questions you may have!
