COVID-19 Information

Free Transportation to Your Free Vaccination

Sign up today for your free COVID-19 vaccine at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. A free Metro Transit pass for the day of your appointment is provided; Metro Mobility will also provide free transportation to its riders.

Or call 833-431-2053; operators are available in multiple languages and can assist in making language and ADA accommodations.

You only need to provide your first name, last name, date of birth, and home address. Your mobile phone number or email address are needed to receive the free metro transit pass. You do NOT need to provide an ID and you do NOT need to have medical insurance to receive the vaccine.

Minnesotans Age 16+ Are Vaccine-Eligible

As of March 30, all Minnesotans age 16 years and over are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. Please confirm vaccination locations and availability and make appointments through the provider's website rather than by phone whenever possible. If you are not connected with a health care provider, sign up for the COVID-19 Vaccine Connector to get updates on vaccine opportunities near you.

Everyone, whether you have been vaccinated or not, still needs to wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet away from others, wash your hands a lot, and stay home if you are sick. For more information about the vaccine, see our About COVID-19 Vaccines page. 

Transcripts of this video have been translated into 16 different languages, including Spanish, Somali, Hmong, and English.

Additional up-to-date information about COVID-19, the vaccines, and more can be found at Minnesota Dept. of Health.

The Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector

On February 18, Minnesota launched the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, a new tool that will help all Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get their shot. Minnesotans who have not yet been vaccinated are encouraged to sign up for the COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, regardless of their current vaccine eligibility status. There will be no cost and no restricted time period for signing up.

Minnesotans can sign up online or call 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone. Translation is available by phone in all languages. Minnesotans can call the translation hotline at 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone. 

Minnesotans will provide basic information to sign up for the Vaccine Connector such as contact information, demographic data, medical history, and employment to determine their eligibility based on state guidelines. The State of Minnesota is committed to the equitable distribution of safe and effective vaccines for protection against COVID-19. The Vaccine Connector sign up form includes questions about gender identity, sexual orientation, race, cultural identification, and disabilities to help the state track and measure equity and fairness throughout the vaccine distribution process. These questions do have the option to select “prefer not to answer” or “none of the above,” and selecting these answers will not prevent you from signing up for the Vaccine Connector.
