Over 65? Finding a Shot in Minnesota — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks for all the great information. I too have been trying to find a place for my vaccination. I too have M Health Fairview. But because I worked in Allina for many years and saw a provider there once or twice, I was contacted by them. But they have no vaccine for we folks in the 65 and older crowd either. Very frustrating as you know. Maybe I will try The People’s Clinic too. My husband used to volunteer there years ago as an OB/Gyn provider.

    Thank for all your hard work and diligence on keeping us informed. You are wonderful!

    • Thank you Linda!

      Thrifty White might be a good option for you, especially if you are able to drive a while to get to a location out of the Metro. They have openings popping up throughout the day; keep refreshing this page. They also promise a waiting list you can sign up for. I believe it should be live any day now.

  2. Thanks for your help. I’m 70 years old. My younger brother and his wife are 68. However, he has had 4 heart attacks and a stroke plus numerous other health problems. His wife is weaker than he is. I’m not in good health, but I am better off than they are. I don’t care right now about me. Any ideas on how I can get shots for them would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

    • Hi David. Things are a bit up in the air now due to the cold / snow / ice to the south of us disrupting manufacture and delivery. The outlets that normally update at midnight did not do so last night (Walmart, Walgreens). You might try People’s Clinic, phone number in the article. My advice to try refreshing Thrifty White is also called into doubt by the weather conditions.
