The Lift Garage is an affordable, non-profit auto repair service for all Minnesotans that meet the 150% Federal Poverty Guideline. We charge only $15 per hour plus the cost of parts at no mark-up. We serve all counties in Minnesota. Full payment is due at the time repairs are completed. We do not accept payment plans. We accept cash and credit cards for payment, no personal checks. Arrangements with third-party payers can be made.

Our goal is getting cars safe and back on the road, so we work on brakes, tires, suspension and steering, starting and charging systems, fuel systems, exhaust systems, and heating and cooling systems (not air conditioning). We do not do work on transmissions or do body work. We are also not able to do significant engine repairs such as head gaskets or engine rebuilds.

Can a COVID-19 Vaccine give you COVID-19?NO. The COVID-19 vaccines currently being developed in the U.S. don’t use the live virus that causes COVID-19. Keep in mind that it will take a few weeks for your body to build immunity after getting a COVID-19 vaccination. As a result, it’s possible that you could become infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or after being vaccinated.

What are the possible Side Effects of a COVID-19 Vaccine?
A COVID-19 vaccine can cause mild side effects after the first or second dose, including:
Pain, redness or swelling where the shot was givenFeverFatigueHeadacheMuscle painChillsJoint pain
You’ll likely be monitored for 15 minutes after getting a COVID-19 vaccine to see if you have an immediate reaction. Most side effects happen within the first three days after vaccination and typically last only one to two days.
The COVID-19 vaccine may cause side effects similar to signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 and you develop symptoms more than three days after getting vaccinated or the symptoms last more than two days, self-isolate and get tested.

Three (3) Benefits of the Vaccine. (1) The COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19. All COVID-19 vaccines that are in development are being carefully evaluated in clinical trials and will be authorized or approved only if they make it substantially less likely you’ll get COVID-19.
(2) The COVID-19 vaccination is a safer way to help build protection. Both natural immunity and immunity produced by a vaccine are essential parts of COVID-19 disease that experts are trying to learn more about. The CDC will keep the public informed as new evidence becomes available.
(3) The COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic. Wearing masks and social distancing help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system, so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed.
