The Minnesota Lynx and Timberwolves, in partnership with Hy-Vee, will offer free, onsite COVID-19 vaccinations to fans at Saturday's home matchup against the Los Angeles Sparks.
"As a civic leader, we recognize the important role sports play in building stronger and healthier communities," said Timberwolves and Lynx CEO Ethan Casson. "In continued partnership with Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health, our walk-up COVID-19 vaccination event on Saturday, June 12 in the Target Center box office lobby, will be an easy access opportunity to encourage Minnesotans to get vaccinated and another significant step forward as we look to welcome the brighter days ahead."
According to a release, the clinic is open to all Minnesotan residents 12 years of age and older. A Lynx game ticket is not required to participate in the clinic. Individuals can walk up and get a vaccine for free, with no appointment necessary.
It's recommended that vaccine recipients bring the following items to their vaccination: insurance card (if people have insurance) and Medicare Part B red, white and blue card (if Medicare recipient) and photo ID. The vaccines are free and insurance is not required. However, masks are required when receiving the vaccination.
The vaccination event will take place in the Target Center box office lobby from 4 to 7 p.m. Both the Johnson & Johnson and the Pfizer vaccine will be available, courtesy of Hy-Vee.
