COVID-19 Vaccine Resources for Students
All Minnesota residents age 12 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC recommends that everyone who can get vaccinated should do so at the first opportunity available to them.
There is no cost for the vaccine. You do not need to provide a government-issued ID or medical insurance to be vaccinated, and no question on immigration status is ever asked.
If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, or other vaccines your child may need, talk to your child’s health provider.
There are a number of ways that parents can get their children vaccinated. Some locations require appointments, but many places are now accepting walk-ins.
12-17 year olds: At this time, the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the only vaccine authorized for use by people age 12-17. Children age 12-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when receiving a vaccine. 16 and 17 year olds must receive permission from a parent or guardian, either in person or online when scheduling an appointment.
18+: Adults 18 and over have three vaccine options. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which require two doses administered 3-4 weeks apart, and the Johnson & Johnson, which is one dose. Parents who are not vaccinated yet are highly encouraged to get vaccinated at the same time as their children.
To find a vaccine:
- Walk in or schedule an appointment through Minnesota’s Community Vaccination Programs at Roy Wilkins (downtown St. Paul), Mall of America (Bloomington), Lino Lakes or Oakdale. You can also get connected to a vaccine through Minnesota’s Vaccine Connector.
- Check the Ramsey County COVID-19 Vaccine website for community and mobile clinics in and near St. Paul.
- Contact your child’s primary health care provider, local public health or a local pharmacy.
- Use the Vaccine Locator Map to find vaccine locations near you.
