Vaccination Update from McLeod County
Your local public health is working with community COVID-19 vaccine providers to find out what the interest is of our 12-17 year-old students in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Please fill out the following survey by Wednesday, May 19th. The survey is anonymous and the results will go directly to local public health. The results of the survey will help us determine the best way to offer the vaccine to this age group. Thank you for your participation. Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mcleodschoolvaccine
If you would like to try to find a vaccine appointment right now, please use the following links to assist you in that search.
In the link below, there is a flyer for an open CentraCare clinic for 12-17 year old students to get the COVID-19 vaccination https://www.co.wright.mn.us/DocumentCenter/View/22195/Monticello-Vaccine-Clinic . In addition, we know that Stellis will provide vaccine to their clients; families just need to call. Allina is reaching out to their patients as well. Pharmacies are also planning opportunities to accept ages 12-15 also. People are already able to schedule through CVS/Target in Monticello and Thrifty White in Annandale.
