Friday, Gov. Tim Walz announced a new COVID-19 vaccination site will open at the former YMCA in Lino Lakes.
According to the governor's office, the site is the ninth permanent community vaccination site in the state, joining Minneapolis, Duluth, Rochester, Bloomington, St. Paul, St. Cloud, Mankato and Oakdale.
The Pfizer vaccine will be administered at the Lino Lakes site, the governor's office reported.
"The state’s expansive network to bring vaccines directly to Minnesotans in their communities continues to grow," Walz said in a statement.

The community vaccination sites are getting shots into arms safely and efficiently, and this new site in Lino Lakes will help us reach more Minnesotans 16 years and older."
The governor's office suggests the following to Minnesotans 16 and older who are now eligible to get the vaccine:
