Flu & Covid 19 Vaccine Clinics

  • Flu & Covid-19 Vaccine Clinics

    Flu Shots Now Available at Weekly Clinics

    SPPS has flu shots available for anyone ages 5 and older at our vaccine clinics. Families, staff and community members can make appointments to receive flu shots by using the vaccine clinic registration links below. These registration forms will allow you to make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine, flu shot, or both. There is a limited number of flu shots available and families without health insurance or with State insurance will receive preference for appointments.


    All Minnesota residents ages 6 months and older are 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.

    Our clinics are currently offering the updated (bivalent) booster shot for anyone ages 5 and older, if it has been at least two months since their second vaccine or booster. This booster shot includes updated protection against COVID-19 Omicron variants. Please note: SPPS’s COVID-19 clinics only offer Pfizer vaccines.

    You must have received your primary series (two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine) to be eligible for the bivalent booster. SPPS does not currently offer the primary vaccine series at our clinics. If you or your child need to receive your first or second COVID-19 vaccine, please visit St. Paul Ramsey County Public Health's vaccine website to find a different clinic that offers these doses: ramseycounty.us/COVIDvaccine.

    COVID-19 Vaccine Available for Children Under 5 Years Old

    SPPS is not yet offering vaccines for children under 5 at our weekly vaccine clinics. We will keep families informed if SPPS hosts vaccine clinics for this age group in the future.

    There are some important differences between the two vaccine options:

    • Pfizer: Children ages 6 months to 4 years old will receive three doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The second dose is given three to eight weeks after the first dose. The third dose is given at least eight weeks after the second dose.
    • Moderna: Children ages 6 months to 5 years old will receive two doses of the Moderna vaccine. The second dose is given four to eight weeks after the first dose.

    Where to Get Vaccines for Children Under 5:

    Why do I need a booster shot?

    COVID-19 vaccines are very effective, but new data shows protection may decrease over time. Booster shots are common for many vaccines, like the flu shot or Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis).


    What to Expect:

    • Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when receiving a vaccine.
    • 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. 

    Other Vaccine Resources:

    • Contact your child’s primary health care provider, local public health or a local pharmacy.
    • Check the Ramsey County COVID-19 Vaccine website for community and mobile clinics in and near St. Paul.
    • Walk in or schedule an appointment with Minnesota’s Community Vaccination Programs at Mall of America (Bloomington) or MSP Terminal 2. You can also get connected to a vaccine through Minnesota’s Vaccine Connector.
    • Use the Vaccine Locator Map to find vaccine locations near you.
