MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — State health officials say some Minnesotans scheduled to receive their Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations at the Minnesota Vikings training facility are going to have to wait.
Officials with the State Emergency Operations Center say the vaccination site at Eagan’s Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center was damaged in Monday evening’s storm, leading to a postponement for those set to get their shots this Wednesday. A spokesperson with the Vikings says the damaged was centered on part of the roof over the indoor practice field.
“The state is working around the clock to identify an alternate location and will contact impacted patients directly to provide an opportunity to reschedule their appointments as soon as possible,” a spokesperson said.
The facility became a temporary community vaccination site last month. Health care workers and Minnesotans ages 65 and older have been selected at random to receive one of the allocated 13,400 one-shot doses.
