On April 21, 2021, the Governor's Office announced the launch of mobile vaccination units to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to communities throughout the state of Minnesota. The six retrofitted and accessible Metro Transit buses are an important tool in reaching underserved communities and reducing barriers to vaccination by going to people where they live or work.

The mobile vaccination units are a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Health, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, Metro Transit, the Metropolitan Council, and Minnesota Department of Transportation.
