The Biden administration has approved Governor Tim Walz’s request for a Federal Community Vaccination Clinic, which will be at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The site will receive 168-thousand COVID vaccine doses over eight weeks — that’s over-and-above the state’s regular allocation — and officials say over 100-thousand people will be vaccinated during that time with either Pfizer or Johnson-and-Johnson vaccines. Minnesotans in zip codes near the Fairgrounds with highest scores on the C-D-C’s “Social Vulnerability Index” will be eligible for appointments, and up to a thousand doses per day will go to other community-based clinics in high index areas. Vaccinations at the Fairgrounds begin April 14th. There’s no cost and medical insurance is not required.
