This page answers common questions you may have about the COVID-19 vaccines. We understand that there is uncertainty around new vaccines and want to offer as much reassurance and information as possible.
We are now offering Covid-19 vaccines to anyone age 12 and up, either by appointment or walk-in. You do not have to be a current NHS patient to get a vaccine. To make a vaccine appointment, call 612-588-9411 and press 3 right away. We offer vaccines at our Central, Fremont, and North Metro clinic locations. Vaccine hours (for both appointments and walk-ins) are from 9:30 am to 12 pm and 1 to 3:30 pm on the following days:
Tuesday at Central Clinic (2301 Central Ave, Minneapolis MN 55418)
Thursday at North Metro Clinic (10081 Dogwood St NW, Coon Rapids MN 55448)
Friday at Fremont Clinic (3300 Fremont Ave N, Minneapolis MN 55412)
NHS offers all 3 types of Covid-19 vaccine (Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson). Please tell us what type of vaccine you want at the time of scheduling. People age 12-17 can only get the Pfizer vaccine.

Should I get the vaccine if I’ve already had COVID-19?
Yes. While data is limited on this matter, it may be possible to contract COVID-19 again if you have already had it. To avoid becoming sick again and spreading the disease to others, vaccination is the best choice.
