Clinics scheduled for April 8 and 15

Welia Health and Kanabec County Community Health have scheduled two COVID-19 vaccine clinics for eligible individuals. As of March 30, this now includes all Minnesotans 16 years of age and older.

Thursday, April 8 clinic

  • The clinic will offer dose one of a two-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine.
    • Individuals must be 16 years of age and older.
    • Those who receive the Pfizer vaccine will need to return in three weeks to receive their second dose.

Thursday, April 15 clinic

  • The clinic will offer dose one of a two-dose series of both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, and the single-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.
    • Individuals must be 18 years of age or older to receive either the Moderna or Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines.
    • Those who receive the Moderna vaccine will need to return in four weeks to receive their second dose.
    • Individuals must be 16 years of age or older to receive the Pfizer vaccine and will need to return in three weeks to receive their second dose.

Please note, vaccines are available by appointment only. While we have received a substantially larger supply of vaccines compared to previous weeks, we anticipate very high demand.

Waiting list

If you are not able to attend these clinics, sign up on our COVID-19 vaccine waiting list.

Please note the Minnesota Department of Health has directed providers to prioritize vaccine appointments for people most at risk of getting COVID-19, or those who could develop severe illness if infected. This includes older Minnesotans, those with underlying health conditions, and those in essential jobs.
