Register for the COVID-19 Vaccine

This message is for Mille Lacs County residents regarding a Public Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic.

Mille Lacs County residents are encouraged to go online to schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine clinic, as they become available. State guidance for eligibility can also be found at the Minnesota Department of Health Website. If you have a medical condition or disability that puts you at higher risk, please contact your doctor prior to the vaccination or plan to get your vaccination at your local clinic  Pre-registration is required on a first-come, first-serve basis

Please make sure you are able to attend both clinics. You will receive a link via email to schedule your second dose appointment 1-3 days after your original appointment. To keep you comfortable and speed the vaccination process, please wear a t-shirt if possible.

More clinics will be added as the vaccine is available. Please check back here for the most up-to-date information.

COVID-19 Vaccine and Pregnancy

People who are pregnant can get the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • We know that pregnant people are at a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease compared to non-pregnant people.
  • Based on how the COVID-19 vaccines work in the body, medical researchers do not think that the vaccines are a risk for people who are pregnant. But, we do not have much data on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant people.
  • If you are pregnant, you can choose to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • You may want to talk with your health care provider to help you decide whether to get vaccinated, but it is not required.

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe for people who want to have a baby one day.

    If you are trying to become pregnant now or want to get pregnant in the future, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine when one is available to you.

    We do not have any data to say that COVID-19 vaccination causes any problems with pregnancy, including the development of the placenta.

    There is no evidence that fertility problems are a side effect of any COVID-19 vaccine.
