Pop Up Vaccination Clinic Happens May 26 At Duluth Transportation Center
The Duluth Transportation Center (DTC) is holding a vaccination clinic for COVID-19 on Wednesday May 26, 2021. The Duluth Transit Authority is partnering with St. Louis County, Health Equity Northland, and AICHO to bring this clinic to the Northland for the second time.
It will happen at the DTC located at 228 West Michigan Street in downtown Duluth. Nurses from St. Louis County will also be on hand to answer any questions people have about the vaccine. They will be in the lobby area from 12:00pm-5:00pm on May 26. There also will be representatives from AICHO (American Indian Community Housing Organization) and Health Equity Northland on hand. Anyone who wishes to get a vaccine will be able to get one free of charge
No insurance is needed, and no appointment is necessary. Just walk in and get your shot. Anyone 12 or older is eligible and they will be using either Pfizer vaccines or one shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Pfizer vaccines require a second booster shot weeks later.
To support this event, the Duluth Transit Authority is offering free rides to and from the vaccination clinic. There also will be free rides on the STRIDE paratransit to and from the clinic.
Currently 44% of people in Minnesota are fully vaccinated. 43% of people in Wisconsin are fully vaccinated. Officials urge people who haven't received a dose to get their vaccine soon so that we can emerge from the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
