COVID-19 Vaccines and Testing 


Vaccines are now available for everyone in the community! We strongly recommend getting your vaccination as soon as you are eligible. 

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) urges that everyone associated with a college or university (faculty, staff, and students) gets vaccinated. Anyone on a college campus is considered to be in a high risk category. 

To find a vaccine:

  • Search for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment near you using the CDC’s Vaccine Finder.
  • Use the Vaccine Locator Map to find local vaccine providers in your area.
  • Connect with your primary health care provider or local pharmacy.
Booster shots are now available for everyone over 18 years old. If you have already completed your full COVID-19 vaccine, get your booster shot as soon as you are eligible.
