The state of Minnesota is partnering with the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) to launch a new temporary pop-up vaccination event in Terminal 1 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP).
“Today, we’re making it even easier for Minnesota travelers to get fully vaccinated,” said Gov. Tim Walz in unveiling the airport vaccination program. “Since the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is just a single dose, now you can protect yourself from COVID-19 while you’re waiting for your flight. We are working hard to offer these safe and effective vaccines to every Minnesotan who wants them, and we are proud to offer options as convenient as this one for frequent flyers.”
The vaccine is offered at no cost to all passengers at MSP. The vaccination site is post-security, meaning it is available only to ticketed passengers with a boarding pass, and to badged MSP employees. Minnesotans aged 18 years and older are eligible to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
For passengers needing some extra motivation to get the shot, both Dunkin’ and Peoples Organic’s locations at the airport will serve up a free cup of coffee to those who produce their vaccine card, specific to their recent shot at MSP.
