COVID-19 Community Vaccination Program (Updated 2/18/2021)

The State of Minnesota just released the availability of the COVID-19 Vaccine Connector! The Vaccine Connector is a tool that helps people in Minnesota find out when, where, and how to get their COVID-19 vaccine. When those who have signed up in the Connector become eligible for the vaccine, the tool will alert them of their eligibility, connect them to resources to schedule a vaccine appointment, and notify them if there are vaccine opportunities in their area.

Minnesota is currently vaccinating health care workers, long-term care residents, pre-kindergarten through grade 12 educators, child care workers and people age 65 and over. All Minnesotans who have not been vaccinated should sign up for the Vaccine Connector.

Instructions for Signing Up

  • Signing up for the Vaccine Connector is easy, safe, and secure.
  • All Minnesotans 18 years of age and older should sign up, no matter their current vaccine eligibility status.
  • There will be no cost and no restricted time period for signing up.
  • Health insurance and personal identification forms are not required for signing up.
  • Go to mn.gov/vaccineconnector to sign up.
  • Minnesotans unable to sign up online can have family or friends help them sign up, or call 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone.
  • Interpreters are available by phone in all languages. Minnesotans can call the translation hotlines at 833-431-2053 and 651-318-0989 for assistance signing up over the phone. While the Connector is currently only available in English, instructions are available in Hmong, Spanish and Somali here: https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/connector/translations.jsp.
  • All Minnesotans have to do to sign up is provide basic information such as contact information, demographic information, medical history, and employment to determine their eligibility based on state guidelines.
  • The State of Minnesota is committed to the equitable distribution of safe and effective vaccines for protection against COVID-19 and the Vaccine Connector form has included questions about gender identity, sexual orientation, race, cultural identification, and disabilities to help us track and measure equity and fairness throughout the vaccine distribution process. These questions do have the option to select “prefer not to answer” or “none of the above,” and selecting these answers will not prevent you from signing up for the Vaccine Connector.

Please use the above information to sign yourself and your loved ones up for the Vaccine Connector! I hope this new tool will help us all get better connected to the vaccine network in Minnesota for efficient and equitable vaccine distribution.
