Walz, Vikings hosting pop-up vaccine clinics at next two home games

Minnesotans who get vaccinated for COVID-19 at either of the next two Vikings home games could get a player-autographed mini helmet and win tickets to the final regular season home game.

Gov. Tim Walz and the Minnesota Vikings announced the pop-up vaccine clinics Friday.

The clinics will be located on the plaza next to the U.S. Bank Stadium light rail station on Oct. 3 and 10. Shots will be administered from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., and walk-ups are welcome. No game ticket is needed. Both home games have a noon kickoff.

The clinics will be offering the single-shot Johnson & Johnson and the two-dose Pfizer vaccines to anyone looking to get their first dose, second shot, or booster.

The first 50 people to get a shot each day will receive a player-autographed mini helmet.

All people ages 18 and older will also be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Vikings-Bears game on Jan. 9, 2022. Two winners will be drawn each day for the Polaris Club seats.

The state is also hosting a vaccine pop-up clinic at Twin Cities Con Saturday.
