MN State Fairgrounds Updates May 26

State Fairgrounds – Updated information regarding Vaccines

With the State Fairgrounds vaccine clinic coming to end soon, I am here to offer information on the final week’s of opportunity for folks, especially from the disability community, to get vaccinated at the State Fair Community Vaccination Site. This site offers the opportunity for anyone 18 and older to get a single-dose, Johnson & Johnson, shot at the facility. Specifically, the site has a disability and sensory friendly drive thru option, translators available in many common languages as well as ASL, and accepts walk-ups in addition to pre-scheduled appointments.

The site’s final weeks are from May 26 until June 8, when it will permanently close. As of today (May 19), the site’s appointments have opened for May 26 onwards. Please help spread the word now about this opportunity, and sign-up for vaccination if you’re eligible and interested!

What to expect at the site:
● Metro Mobility riders can get free rides.
● A health care provider will come onto the bus and vaccinate you while you wait.
● Drive-thru, stay-in-car vaccination available.
● American Sign Language interpreters on site.
● Spoken language interpreters onsite.
● Free rides on Metro Transit.
● ADA accessible drop-off and pickup.

● Minnesotans from anywhere can WALK-IN to the state fair site from May 26-June 8, no appointment necessary!
● There is no requirement to show government ID either during registration or at the site.
● Getting the vaccine is free and health insurance is not required.
