After the Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) Performance Center venue received damages due to the weather, Gov. Tim Walz announced Wednesday that U.S Bank Stadium will temporarily replace the vaccination event at the Vikings training facility.

According to the release, appointments on Wednesday at TCO Performance Center were postponed, and impacted patients will be contacted directly to reschedule their appointments as soon as possible. Appointments after Wednesday originally scheduled at TCO Performance Center remain scheduled and will now be administered at U.S. Bank Stadium. 

Minnesotans who have not received a vaccine are suggested to sign up for the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, which will notify users about vaccine opportunities near them. Users currently eligible for the vaccine may be randomly selected for an appointment at a Community Vaccination Program location. Minnesotans may be contacted directly if they can make an appointment.

The temporary U.S. Bank Stadium event joins eight permanent community vaccination sites across Minnesota in Duluth, Rochester, Bloomington, St. Paul, St. Cloud, Mankato, Oakdale and the Minneapolis Convention Center.
