As COVID-19 vaccines begin to become more broadly available, the University of Minnesota continues follow guidelines developed at the federal and state level.
(Updated April 12, 2021)
Multiple vaccines have received Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and have been shown to be effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalizations due to COVID-19. As of March 30, all Minnesotans age 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
As outlined by the Minnesota Department of Health, is coordinating the vaccination effort in Minnesota. Find the latest information on vaccine data, distribution, and availability on the MN Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine website.
The Minnesota Department of Health keeps its citizens informed through their “Who’s Getting Vaccinated?” website and the “vaccine connector,” a tool that helps find out when, where, and how to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Current status on the Duluth campus:
- Community vaccination sites are established in Duluth that provide vaccines to eligible individuals. Those with access to vaccines through external partners are encouraged to take that opportunity to be vaccinated.
- The national VaccineFinder website is useful for locating the vaccine at pharmacies and clinics within a certain distance from a zip code.
- On behalf of UMD, Dr. David Worley continues to advocate with MDH, St. Louis County, and the UMTC HERO office for UMD students, faculty, and staff to receive vaccines.
