Otter Tail County Public Health sponsored vaccine clinics this week to administer doses to remaining health care personnel identified by MDH, and second doses to those in Phase 1a who received their first doses of COVID-19 vaccine at public health clinics. In addition, another supply of COVID-19 vaccine was allocated to public health and was used for schools and child care programs across the county. Public health COVID-19 vaccine clinics for eligible populations continue to be done by invitation only. Otter Tail County Public Health does not currently have COVID-19 vaccine for those who are 65 plus.
While supply of COVID-19 vaccine remains limited, locations of where to access the vaccine are increasing. People interested in finding vaccination sites for those 65 plus should visit mn.gov/covid19/vaccine and click on “Find My Vaccine.” Vaccine locations do require appointments and preregistration.
