MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - A free neighborhood COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be held at Mankato Youth Place, or MY Place, this Tuesday.

The clinic aims to improve vaccine access for those more susceptible to the virus and who many have barriers to healthcare.

MY Place, on South Broad Street, is one of many organizations contributing to the event.

Erin Simmons, Executive Director at Mankato Youth Place said, “We have a space in the downtown area, and that provides a great opportunity for partnerships with other organizations like refugee services and our healthcare partners so that we can provide access to the individuals in the downtown area to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.”

Hy-Vee pharmacy workers will administer Pfizer vaccines to individuals 12 and older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent. Second doses will be provided next month at MY Place.
