COVID-19 and Anoka Tech

 Student Services and Resources

No single person or group of people are more likely than others to spread COVID-19.  Fear and anxiety about a disease can lead to social stigma and discrimination, particularly against certain racial and ethnic groups, including Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and black or African Americans. Stigma hurts everyone by creating more fear or anger toward ordinary people instead of focusing on the disease that is causing the problem, and making it more difficult to control spread. Help stop stigma by letting people know accurate information about how the virus spreads Source CDC

COVID-19 Vaccination, Testing & Guidance


Staying up-to-date on all COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters remains the best precaution we have against severe illness, hospitalization and death due to COVID-19, as well as providing some protection against virus transmission and variant spread.

Minnesotans can use the state's Vaccine Connector to find and schedule vaccination appointments for primary and booster doses. Read more about MDH's COVID-19 vaccine distribution and review Minnesota vaccination data.

All Minnesotans age 5 and older who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination series are recommended to get booster doses when eligible. 

You don’t have to get your booster doses at the same place that you received your initial series. There are many places offering booster shots. If appointments are full, keep checking back as more will become available. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.
