Sports Center will Partner with mdh to Vaccinate Athletes and Families
On Sunday, The Blaine National Sports Center will partner with the Minnesota Department of Health to host an onsite COVID-19 vaccine pop-up during the NSC CUP tournament which will host 115 teams with athletes ages 12-18. The pop-up will focus on athletes and families attending the tournament but residents in the Blaine area are welcome to make an appointment as well.
‘Roll Up Your Sleeves, MN’ the State’s COVID-19 vaccine outreach campaign has worked with many different industries and groups to get Minnesotans vaccinated. The campaign is now focused on partnering with organizations and entities directly to serve Minnesotans in their communities.
“Making vaccines as accessible as possible to all Minnesotans is critical to reaching our statewide goal of 70%,” said Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm. “We are working with organizations around the state to get this done, and we are grateful to Blaine National Sports Center for partnering with us to host this athlete-focused vaccine pop-up. We hope it encourages other organizations to reach out and do the same. Together, we can protect Minnesotans and get to those brighter days ahead.”
“The focus of the athletes at our facilities should be on their sports, not on getting sick from COVID-19,” said executive director Todd Johnson. “Vaccinations are the only path to a COVID-19 free reality. We are proud to do our part to provide athletes, their families, and our communities with the shots they need to get back in the game, worry free. A huge thanks to MDH for helping make this possible.”
Walk-ins are welcome, or register here for an appointment!
