The Autism Society of Minnesota, Multicultural Autism Action Network (MAAN), and Spero Academy are partnering with Hennepin Healthcare to offer a sensory-friendly COVID-19 vaccine clinic for kids and families on Saturday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Spero Academy in Minneapolis.

The clinic will include private vaccine areas as well as other accommodations to make your child’s vaccine experience go as smoothly as possible. First vaccines will be available for family members as well as boosters for those who qualify. You must provide proof of vaccine and meet requirements in order to receive a booster.

Though this is called a “kids clinic,” we are here to serve all with autism and sensory sensitivities; all ages are welcome. The second vaccine clinic will be held on Jan. 8. More information about the January clinic will be available soon.
