The COVID-19 Vaccine Connector Tool and Timeline
Minnesota has just launched a new tool to make reliable vaccine updates and COVID-19 related information reach you faster. The COVID-19 Vaccine Connector will help Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
When you become eligible, the Vaccine Connector will:
- alert you of your eligibility;
- connect you to resources to schedule a vaccine appointment; and
- notify you if there are vaccine opportunities in your area.
As Minnesotans become eligible for the vaccine, they will still make appointments directly through a registered vaccinator at this time. You can find vaccination centers near you here.
However, this Connector is an easy way for Minnesotans to stay updated about their eligibility and find opportunities to get a shot once it’s their turn. For more information about signing up, eligibility, and more, visit https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/connector/.
Minnesotans unable to sign up online can have family or friends help them sign up online or call 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone.
Vaccine distribution got off to a slow start throughout the nation, but Minnesota is making improvements every week as we receive more doses from the federal government. A new online vaccine locator map is available to help Minnesotans more easily find and connect with local vaccine providers. This map will grow as the federal government sends Minnesota more doses.
Another helpful resource for information about COVID-19 is https://mn.gov/covid19.
As spring approaches, we can also see our path out of this pandemic. Below is the Graphic that details more clearly, which population will get the vaccine and when. It’s important to note that if we reach our state’s goals, all Minnesotans by this summer will have access to get the vaccine.
