On January 11, Governor Tim Walz launched the next phase of the ‘Kids Deserve a Shot!’ vaccine incentives program, now encouraging Minnesota families to get their children 5-11 years old fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Getting as many eligible Minnesotans vaccinated as possible is critical to helping curb the spread of COVID-19 and keep Minnesota families safe. Vaccines help keep kids safe from severe illness and hospitalization.
