February 19: Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector

Dear Colleagues,

With continued focus on the health and safety of our campus community, CSB/SJU encourages faculty and staff to consider getting vaccinated. The State of Minnesota announced the launch of the Minnesota Vaccine Connector, a new tool that helps Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Vaccine Connector will:

  • alert you when you are eligible to receive a vaccine;
  • connect you to resources to schedule a vaccine appointment; and
  • notify you if there are vaccine opportunities in your area.

This tool is for all Minnesotans 18 years of age and older who have not yet been vaccinated. Insurance and identification are not needed, and signing up is free.

You can sign up online or call 833-431-2053 for assistance over the phone. Phone hours are M-F, 9:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. There is no time pressure to sign up. The information gathered will be used to contact individuals when they become eligible to receive the vaccine.

Sign up at Vaccine Connector. It is easy, safe, and secure.

Reporting to CSB/SJU that you have been vaccinated is voluntary. Doing so helps us in assessing ongoing campus mitigation needs and overall campus vaccination coverage. A voluntary report may be made through Forms Manager at this link COVID Vaccination Report. The form will be received by the Director of Human Resources and the Employee COVID Coordinator. Providing your name is optional, and the report does not ask for health related information. The data collected is for statistical tracking only.
