Anoka-Ramsey is committed to decision-making that prioritizes community safety and offering an extraordinary academic experience for our students.
Staying up-to-date on all COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters remains the best precaution we have against severe illness, hospitalization and death due to COVID-19, as well as providing some protection against virus transmission and variant spread.
Minnesotans can use the state's Vaccine Connector to find and schedule vaccination appointments for primary and booster doses. Read more about MDH's COVID-19 vaccine distribution and review Minnesota vaccination data.
All Minnesotans age 5 and older who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination series are recommended to get booster doses when eligible.
You don’t have to get your booster at the same place that you received your initial series. There are many places offering booster shots. If appointments are full, keep checking back as more will become available. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.

Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity. People of Asian descent, including Chinese Americans, are not more likely to get COVID-19 than any other American. Help stop fear by letting people know that being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19.
