ST. PAUL, MN — In collaboration with the Metropolitan Airports Commission, Minnesota governor Tim Walz announced a second temporary vaccination site at Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport.

Vaccinations are available to the public and travelers of 18 years of age and older. The site is located at Terminal 2, outside the security checkpoint, and opens every day from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning Thursday, June 10.

“All eligible Minnesotans can now get fully vaccinated at the airport, without going through security,” said Governor Walz. “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine offered at the airport is just a single dose, so you can now protect yourself from COVID-19 in one-stop while you catch your flight, or wait for your loved one to land.”

Over 600,006 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered through the state’s Community Vaccination Program.

“We are working hard to offer these safe and effective vaccines to every Minnesotan who wants them, and we are proud to offer options as convenient as this one for travelers and non-travelers alike,” added Walz.

Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan also stated Minnesotans do not have to worry about the safety issue of the vaccine and urged everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

“The vaccine is safe, it’s free, and most importantly, it works,” said Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan. “Whether you are arriving, taking off, picking someone up, or just happen to be in the neighborhood, it’s easier than ever for Minnesotans to access their vaccine at MSP Airport.”

All Minnesotans 18 years of age and older are eligible to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in Terminal 2 outside of security.

Participants do not need a boarding pass to access the vaccine at the Terminal 2 location. The Terminal 1 vaccine event remains open for travelers catching a flight or arriving at MSP Airport.

Minnesotans are encouraged to walk in or make an appointment via the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, by calling 833-431-2053, or by making an appointment online at:
