Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19 Vaccination

CLICK HERE for answers to commonly asked questions about COVID-19 vaccinations. CDC also has information for busting common vaccine myths available in facts about COVID-19 vaccines.

Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?

Information if you have been fully vaccinated

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.



Vaccine Connector

The Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector is a tool that helps Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get a COVID-19 vaccine. You are also able to sign up for an appointment directly!

If you have questions about the form or need language assistance, please call  1-833-431-2053. 

After you fill out a simple form, 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.
