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, by appointment. 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 all four of our clinic locations, on various days.
