Anyone under the age of 18 must have parent or legal guardian consent to be eligible for the shot. Parents or guardians can print and sign this consent form or they can accompany their child to the clinic.
Both walk-ins and scheduled appointments will be available. Patients and non-patients can make an appointment through Essentia’s MyChart patient portal or by calling (833) 494-0836.
All three vaccines currently available in the U.S. — Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — are remarkably effective at preventing COVID infections, and all three are almost 100% effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths.
Across Essentia’s system in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, more than 167,000 vaccinations have been administered.
