Community Health offers COVID boosters and vaccines – Park Rapids Enterprise

CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health will offer a booster shot clinic for those who received their first and second doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six months ago.

This clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28 in the lower level conference room at CHI St. Joseph’s Health. Pre-registration is required due to verification requirements by signing up at www.chisjhs.org

Due to limited staff availability, the hospital may not be able to assist with registration by phone, so anyone who is able to offer assistance to a friend or family member who needs help registering online is encouraged to do so.

This clinic will be for Moderna boosters only and previous vaccination status will be verified prior to administration.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, Minnesotans who got the Moderna vaccine can now get a booster at least six months after their initial series if they are:

● 65 years and older

● Age 18 and older and live in long-term care settings

● Age 18 and older with underlying medical conditions

● Age 18 and older and work or live in high-risk settings

CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health will also offer walk-in availability this week for primary series (first and second doses) of the Pfizer vaccine and Johnson & Johnson vaccine from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26 and Wednesday, Oct. 27 at the Community Health Office, located at 1415 1st Street East in Park Rapids.

The Pfizer vaccine is available for ages 12 and older, and Johnson & Johnson for 18 and older. Anyone under 18 years of age will require parental consent. Incentives are available for those receiving the Pfizer vaccine through the state of Minnesota and more information is available at the office. Booster doses are not available on a walk-in basis.

Anyone who needs to get in before 8:30 a.m. or after 4 p.m. should call the Community Health office at 218-237-5464 and they will try to make accommodations.
