MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Summer is the time to gather with your family and friends. However, before that, you need to make sure that you have protected both yourself and your loved ones by getting the vaccines.

Hennepin County is opening several vaccination sites this week. Between July 1 and August 15, people who receive the vaccine at a Hennepin County vaccine event will receive a $50 Visa gift card, as long as it is available. If you receive two doses at any of Hennepin County events, you will be eligible to get two $50 Visa gift cards.

People age 18 and older, parents or guardians of youth aged 12 and older, and youths who are able to get the consent and get a first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at any Hennepin County vaccine event are eligible for the gift cards.

Pre-registered attendees are preferred but you can walk in at several events only. All are welcome and you do not have to be a Hennepin County resident to join in these events. Since these events are sponsored by Hennepin County, all the vaccines administered are free of charge.

If you prefer to get your shots upon appointment, you can visit the event on these locations and schedules:

- South Education Center/District 287

7450 Penn Ave. South, Richfield, MN 55423

Wednesday, July 14, 4 - 6:45 p.m

- Word of Peace Lutheran Church

21705 129th Ave. N. Rogers, MN 55374

Thursday, July 15, 9 - 11 a.m.

Both locations will administer Pfizer vaccine for recipients aged 12 or older and allow no walk-in. Although appointments are still preferred, if you want to get Pfizer vaccine with limited walk-ins allowance, you can visit:

- Brookdale Public Library

6125 Shingle Creek Parkway, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430
