From the Minnesota Department of Health and Education - Share with Families: COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters

All eligible Minnesotans are encouraged to get vaccinated and boosted. Minnesota is offering boosters at the state’s Mall of America (16+) and MSP Airport (18+) vaccine sites as well as other state-run and state-hosted 5- to 11-year-old vaccine clinics, including those hosted at schools.

Minnesotans can find boosters anywhere vaccines are offered. For ages 18 and over, the booster dose does not have to be the same brand of vaccine as your initial series. Minnesotans 16 and 17 years old must get a Pfizer booster shot. Visit mn.gov/vaccine or contact a provider to get boosted and vaccinated. Find information specifically about boosters here.
