Roy Wilkins Auditorium to Host COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment-Only Event
Governor Tim Walz announced yesterday a mass vaccination pilot event for metro area educators, school staff and child care providers. The location for the appointment-only event is Roy Wilkins Auditorium inside Saint Paul RiverCentre - not at Xcel Energy Center, as previously announced.
The state is allocating 15,000 Moderna vaccine doses to be administered Thursday, Jan. 28 through Monday, Feb. 1 for this event.
These clinics are not open to walk ups. School districts, charter schools, tribal schools and nonpublic school organizations will work directly with employees to secure an appointment through the state-sponsored pilot clinics. Child care programs are randomly selected and will be notified if vaccines are available. Education and child care workers who have questions should work with their employer.
