COVID-19 Vaccine Updates
Getting your vaccination is an important step in keeping yourself, your loved ones and our community safe.
Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
Anyone age 6 months or older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination at any of our primary care locations.
To learn more about vaccinations for children, visit the State of Minnesota’s COVID-19 Vaccine for Children and Teens website.
Let us help answer your questions
For those 5 years and older: Your second dose is scheduled 3-8 weeks after your first dose.
For those 5 years and older who have gotten at least two doses: You can get a bivalent booster if it has been at least 8 weeks since your last dose. Individuals 5 years and older can only get one booster at this time.
For those 6 months to 5 years: There are 3 doses. The second dose is 3-8 weeks after the first, and the third dose is at least 8 weeks after your second. There is not a bivalent vaccine for this age group.
Children under 18 will need to be accompanied by at least one parent or legal guardian during their vaccination visit.
You should not receive a bill for your COVID-19 vaccination. The vaccine itself is supplied by the federal government at no charge. There is an administering billing code that will be charged to your insurance (including Medicare and Medicaid) but is mandated to be covered at 100% and should not lead to a patient responsibility or cost-sharing. If you do not have insurance, this administering expense will be covered by the HRSA COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund if it is verified you do not have insurance coverage.
No. As long as you provide your Medicare beneficiary ID when registering, the vaccine will be billed to Medicare and 100% covered.
Please provide your Medicare beneficiary ID when scheduling your appointment. If you’re unable to provide when scheduling, you must bring your Medicare Card to your vaccine appointment.
You will be financially liable for the vaccine services provided. This is a requirement for the vaccinations purchased and supplied by the federal government.
Because the state determines our vaccine supply and we cannot predict which vaccines will be available and when we are not able to schedule you for a specific brand of vaccine. You are welcome to schedule an appointment and then chose whether you wish to go through with your vaccination once you arrive and determine which brand of vaccine is being administered that day.
Unfortunately, our providers are not able to provide letters to accommodate requests for a specific brand of vaccine at this time.
