MDH Vaccination Bus

In just over four days, the Minnesota State Fair has administered more vaccines than other state fairs around the Midwest.

According to Governor Tim Walz, more than 1,000 Fairgoers have been vaccinated at the COVID-19 Community Vaccination Clinic at the Minnesota State Fair.

“More than 1,000 Fairgoers have rolled up their sleeves and walked away with both $100 in hand and a new layer of protection against this deadly virus,” said Governor Walz. “Don’t miss this opportunity. If you’re already going to be at the State Fair, get your shot and get your cash.”

So far, 1,199 Fairgoers have received a COVID-19 vaccine at the Community Vaccine Clinic. Minnesotans who get their first dose at the clinic can receive a $100 Visa gift card on site. Of the 3,600 gift cards available, Fairgoers have claimed 1,183.

In just over four days, the Minnesota State Fair has administered more vaccines than other state fairs around the Midwest. The Community Vaccine Clinic will be open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Labor Day. State Fair tickets are required to enter State Fairgrounds.
