Free COVID-19 vaccine clinics with Children’s Minnesota and MDH

Children’s Minnesota and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) are joining together to vaccinate children ages 6 months and older against COVID-19. From July 12 through August 30, 2022, MDH is sponsoring COVID-19 vaccine clinics at several Children’s Minnesota primary care locations. The effort is part of the Minnesota Community Vaccination Program which brings easy, free and safe vaccine opportunities to familiar community settings.

In addition to children 6 months and older, the COVID-19 vaccine or booster will also be available to the parents or caregivers of children.

Sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at one of these clinics. Walk-ins are welcomed, but appointments are recommended.
