Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector - Vaccination Opportunity Notifications

New Tool Connects Residents to COVID-19 Vaccines

A new tool launched on February 18th helps all Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector connects residents to vaccine opportunities once it’s their turn to get a shot.

Those 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.  When a person becomes eligible to receive a vaccine under state guidelines, the Vaccine Connector will alert them of their eligibility, connect them to resources to schedule an appointment, and notify them if there are vaccination opportunities in their area. Appointments will be made directly through a registered vaccinator, but the Connector is an easy way to stay apprised of eligibility and find opportunities to get a shot.  

Sign up at Residents unable to sign up online can call 833-431-2053. Translation is available by phone by calling the translation hotline at 833-431-2053. Citizens 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. Minnesota is currently vaccinating health care workers, long-term care residents, pre-kindergarten through grade 12 educators, child care workers and people age 65 and over. Anyone who has not been vaccinated should sign up for the Vaccine Connector.  Demand for vaccine still far exceeds supply. Everyone will have an opportunity to get vaccinated, it will just take time and the Vaccine Connector is another tool Minnesotans can use to be prepared.
