Getting your child vaccinated is the best way to protect them and the people around them. Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can still get sick from COVID-19 and spread the disease to others.
As the delta variant drives a fourth wave of cases in the state, we know that kids aren’t immune from the severe effects of COVID-19. Since the end of summer, pediatric cases of COVID-19 have more than doubled. More than 45,000 pediatric cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Minnesota since July alone, with 300 hospitalizations.
Use the CDC’s Vaccine Finder at vaccines.gov to find pharmacies offering pediatric vaccinations;
Look to your school district for more information about vaccination opportunities at your child’s school, or
Make an appointment at Mall of America’s vaccination clinic. The clinic is open Wednesday – Friday, 1 – 8 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The clinic is located on Level 2 in the Southeast Court. Walk-ins are also welcome.
