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. "Our Community Vaccine Program remains a key component of this life-saving network. 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:

  • Register with the Vaccine Connector tool to get information on making appointments at one of the state's community vaccination program locations,
  • Use the state's Vaccine Finder map to find the closest provider,
  • Contact their primary health care provider or a local pharmacy,
  • Check with their employers for any information about workplace vaccination opportunities.
