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 6 months and up, by appointment. You do not have to be a current NHS patient to get a vaccine. Vaccine appointments are available at all 4 clinic locations at varying times, call 612-588-9411 to schedule an appointment!
NHS offers first shots, second shots and booster shots, in addition to all 3 types of Covid-19 vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson). Please tell us what type of vaccine you want at the time of scheduling.
If you believe you are eligible for a Covid-19 booster vaccine, please call the clinic (612-588-9411) and ask to speak to a nurse to discuss Covid-19 booster options.
