Governor Tim Walz announced that Minnesota’s eighth permanent community vaccination site is now open at Inwood Oaks Event Center in Oakdale.
Minnesota’s seven other large-scale vaccination sites are at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, the Minneapolis Convention Center, and in Rochester, Duluth, Mankato & St. Cloud.
Inwood Oaks Event Center in Oakdale will be administering the two-shot Pfizer vaccine.
“Across the state, we continue to build an expansive network to bring vaccines directly to Minnesotans in their communities. Our Community Vaccine Program remains a key component of this life-saving network,” said Governor Walz. “The Community Vaccination sites are getting shots into arms safely and efficiently, and this new location will help us reach more Minnesotans 16 years and up.”
All Minnesotans over the age of 16 are eligible to receive a vaccine now after the state expanded its availability earlier this week.
Vaccine’s are administered by appointment only. Walk-ins are not accepted.
