Cub hosted Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Department of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm on Oct. 26 at its Northside store located 701 W. Broadway Ave. in Minneapolis, to receive their COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.

Before receiving their shots, the trio held a brief media event to highlight the importance of getting the booster shot when recommended.

In March, Walz received the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine alongside Pawlenty in a bipartisan effort to encourage Minnesotans to roll up their sleeves and get their shot.

“Federal authorization of [Pfizer], Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster doses means more Minnesotans will be able to maximize their protection against COVID-19,” Walz said. “As a Johnson & Johnson recipient myself, I am excited to be able to get boosted protection against this virus, especially as the weather gets colder, the holidays approach and more of our interactions and activities move indoors. Minnesotans who are recommended to get a booster should roll up their sleeves and get their shot.”

“Cub has been a part of the Minnesota community for over 50 years, and over the past several months our 81 pharmacies have provided over 130,000 COVID-19 vaccines. I am extremely proud of our entire team’s commitment throughout the pandemic to ensure our communities have access to food and health services they need most in their daily lives,” said Cub CEO Mike Stigers.

Based in Stillwater, Minnesota, Cub was established in 1968 as one of the nation’s first discount grocery stores. The organization, which is owned by parent company UNFI, operates 80 grocery stores in Minnesota and Illinois.
