Governor Walz, YMCA of the North Announce COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics Across Greater Twin Cities YMCA Locations

Children 12+ and families encouraged to get vaccinated for a safe and healthy school year

 

August 31, 2021



[ST. PAUL, MN] — Today, Governor Tim Walz and the YMCA of the North announced a series of free COVID-19 vaccine clinics at YMCA locations across the Greater Twin Cities area.

“COVID-19 vaccines are the best tools we have to keep our children and families safe and beat this pandemic,” said Governor Walz. “Now is a critical time to make sure all of our family members 12 years of age and older are vaccinated to ensure a safe and healthy school year. Thank you to the YMCA of the North for helping bring these life-saving vaccines into our communities, meeting Minnesotans where they are, and making it easier than ever to get your family protected against COVID-19.”

“We all want to keep our kids and families safe heading back into fall and the school year — and that means getting as many of us vaccinated as possible,” said Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan. “I am grateful to the YMCA of the North for their partnership and working with us to keep Minnesotans healthy and our communities strong. To all the families with children 12 years of age and older who still need to get their COVID-19 vaccine: don’t miss this opportunity right at your local YMCA.”

Through a partnership between the State of Minnesota and the YMCA of the North, a leading nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will be offered to all Minnesotans 12-years-of-age and older at more than a dozen YMCA locations.

“The YMCA is honored to serve as a community hub in efforts such as these free clinics to advance wellbeing for all,” said Glen Gunderson, president and CEO of the YMCA of the North. “We are committed to keeping our communities healthy and strong.”

Minnesotans will be able to walk-in or make an appointment online at http://www.ymcanorth.org/vaccine-clinics and can receive either their first or second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines will be provided in partnership with SpeciaLysts, local public health, and MetroTransit mobile vaccine units.
