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 or contact a provider to get boosted and vaccinated. Find information specifically about boosters here.
