In Duluth, they're offering vaccine shots in the downtown bus depot.
In St. Paul, volunteer physicians are working with a local brewery on a pop-up event that rewards those who get vaccinated with a free beer.
And in the northwest metro, an Elk River clinic is offering shots to patients as they seek help for other health care needs.
The strategies are meant to persuade Minnesota's unvaccinated to finally get their shots at a time when the pace of COVID-19 immunizations has slowed significantly. Since early April, the statewide average for first doses administered has fallen from about 40,000 per day to fewer than 14,000 at the end of last week, according to the Star Tribune's vaccination tracker.

Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, D-Coachella, receives a dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine from Dr. Tien Vo Friday in El Centro. Garcia, who was in the Valley for various events and meetings, made a spur-of-the-moment decision to receive the vaccine. He said he wanted to boost public confidence in the safety and efficacy of the J&J vaccine, as well as to encourage members of the public who are eligible to be vaccinated to do so. Garcia said he and his own family contracted COVID-19 in June 2020, and it took him personally about six weeks to recover. “It’s no joke,” he said. PHOTO TOM BODUS

It is also the first time the WHO has given emergency use approval to a Chinese vaccine for any infectious disease.

Last week, the official word came: If you're vaccinated, you can finally ditch your mask in certain social settings. One might expect the announcement to be met with waves of relief and an immediate shift in behavior. For some there was.

Thailand set to boost Covid-19 vaccinations, expects to approve Moderna shots

BANGKOK (REUTERS) - Thailand expects to offer the Moderna vaccine to most of its population soon as it steps up the roll-out of its Covid-19 vaccination campaign, a health official said on Saturday (May 8).
The latest drive comes amid growing public criticism of the slow roll-out of free vaccinations offered by the government, which stands at 1.73 million shots so far - less than 1 per cent of its population.
Health authorities have yet to start mass vaccinations even as the tourism-reliant country struggles with a third wave of infections.
The government expects 61 million shots of AstraZeneca to be produced locally from June. But these vaccinations and those from Moderna will not be offered free.
