Minnesota launched a statewide campaign encouraging students and families to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the beginning of the school year. We’re launching this campaign 5 weeks out from the first day of school — the length of time it takes for a student to go from their first dose of Pfizer vaccine to fully vaccinated.
Right now, only one-third of Minnesotans 12-15 years old and less than half of Minnesotans 16-17 years old are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
We need your help to spread the word about this campaign and make sure everyone heading back to learn and work in our schools this fall stays safe and healthy!
