ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX47) — You can get vaccinated against COVID-19 at several Minnesota sports games starting Saturday.
The Walz administration is joining a number of other states making the shots available at sporting events.
The new initiative, announced in a news release on Thursday, is part of the state’s efforts to expand access to the vaccine.
“We are always looking for creative ways to get vaccines directly to Minnesotans,” Gov. Tim Walz said. “This partnership is just another example of that work – and a shining example of these teams’ ongoing commitment to their fans and our communities. So roll up your sleeves as you return to the stands this summer, Minnesota sports fans – and then enjoy the game!”
You won’t need to show health insurance or any identification, per the release.
This begins Saturday night at the Minnesota Wild playoff game against the Vegas Golden Knights. The puck drops for Game 4 at 7 p.m.
It continues at Target Field this coming Monday through Wednesday for the Twins series against the Baltimore Orioles.
For Monday and Tuesday’s games, first pitch is set for 6:40 p.m. Wednesday’s game begins at 12:10 p.m.
Additional vaccination opportunities will be available at the Target Center on June 12 for the Minnesota Lynx game.
Another event is taking place on June 23 at Allianz Field as Minnesota United FC takes on Austin FC.
