The Otter Tail County Department of Health provided a update of its COVID-19 distribution data.
Public health clinics
Public health sponsored vaccine clinics this week were scheduled to administer COVID-19 vaccine doses to school educators and staff, as well as child care providers. In addition, second doses to those in phase 1a who received their first doses of COVID-19 vaccine at public health clinics.
The Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector is a new tool that helps Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get a COVID-19 vaccine. People who have not yet been vaccinated are encouraged to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine connector, regardless of their current vaccine eligibility status.
For more information and to sign up go to mn.gov/vaccineconnector. If unable to sign up online, call 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone. Translation is available by phone in all languages. Minnesotans can call the translation hotline at 833-431-2053 for assistance signing up over the phone.
People eligible for the vaccine, you will still need to make an appointment directly through a registered vaccinator. But the connector is an easy way to stay updated about vaccine eligibility and find opportunities to get a shot once it is your turn.
Find my vaccine
While supply of COVID-19 vaccine remains limited, locations of where to access the vaccine are increasing. People interested in finding vaccination sites should visit mn.gov/covid19/vaccine and click on “Find My Vaccine.” Vaccine locations do require appointments and preregistration.
