Anoka-Ramsey Community College and Anoka Technical College are partnering with Anoka County Public Health to offer free COVID-19 vaccine clinics, open to anyone aged 12+ on Thursday, Aug. 5 and 26 from 2 to 4 pm.

Important information:

  • The clinic will provide the Pfizer vaccine by walk-in or by appointment.

  • You can schedule both doses through this clinic with the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine administered on Thursday, Aug. 5 and the second dose being administered at on Thursday, Aug. 26.

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is one of the best ways to protect yourself and everyone around you. The more people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, the better it is for everyone. By stopping the spread of COVID-19, we can keep businesses, schools, and other venues open. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 gets us closer to the end of the pandemic.
