On Tuesday, Gov. Tim Walz, along with Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, made an appearance at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to highlight the COVID-19 pop-up community vaccination event that will be available for travelers for a temporary amount of time. 

The governor's office made the official announcement on Friday.

"Today, we're making it even easier for Minnesota travelers to get fully vaccinated," Walz said in a statement. "The Johnson & Johnson vaccine offered at the airport is just a single dose, so you can now protect yourself from COVID-19 in one stop while you catch your flight. We are working hard to offer these safe and effective vaccines to every Minnesotan who wants them, and we are proud to offer options as convenient as this one for travelers."

Over 600,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered through the state's Community Vaccination Program.
