COVID-19 third doses and boosters

Which booster should you get? Any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States

People who qualify for a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna:

Pregnancy and vaccination
COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future. Evidence about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy has been growing. These data suggest that the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any known or potential risks of vaccination during pregnancy. There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems in women or men. Pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill with COVID-19 compared with non-pregnant people. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can protect you from severe illness from COVID-19.

Waitlist Information
What does it mean if I am waitlisted?
If you have been waitlisted, it means the current clinic is full. If someone cancels their appointment, there might be an opportunity for you to take their spot the day of the vaccine clinic.
Our goal is to use every vaccine possible. Sometimes there are extra doses we can administer within the last hour of the vaccine clinic. If there’s an opportunity for you to get into one of these potential appointments, you will be notified by phone. You must arrive within the allotted timeframe or you will lose the opportunity.

If I was able to get on the waitlist, does that mean I have to re-register for a future vaccine clinic?
Yes, each vaccine clinic is a unique event. Some vaccine clinics may occur in the same location, but each clinic requires new registration.

Will Call List: 
We have a Will Call List for individuals who live or work in McLeod County and would like to be scheduled for a vaccination appointment or are willing to be called with short notice to receive a vaccine if we have extra doses at one of our vaccination clinics. To be added to our Will Call List, please call our office at 320-864-3185. If you are directed to leave a voicemail, please leave your name and a phone number or email address where you can be reached. Please also call us as needed to request to be removed from our Will Call List.

We thank you for your patience as we respond to COVID-19 vaccine supply and demand. We will continue to schedule clinics as we have a supply of COVID-19 vaccine. Please continue to monitor our county website page for new links to schedule an appointment for an upcoming clinic.
