MINNEAPOLIS (April 27, 2021) - Allina Health is excited to share that we have reached a key milestone in our COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Beginning today, Allina Health is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to all people 16 years or older, including Allina Health patients and non-patients. All eligible Allina Health patients have been offered the opportunity to receive a vaccine from us.

“The COVID-19 vaccine offers crucial protection to our patients, staff and communities,” said John Misa MD, chief medical officer, Allina Health Group. “We continue to encourage anyone 16 and older to get the COVID-19 vaccination to help bring an end to this pandemic as soon as possible.”

Allina Health is proud to administer COVID-19 vaccines and we are providing vaccinations as quickly as we are able. Existing patients can schedule an appointment via their Allina Health account (MyChart) by visiting AllinaHealth.org and selecting My Account. Non-patients can schedule an appointment online by visiting AllinaHealth.org and selecting Get Care. Allina Health patients and non-patients can also call our COVID-19 Scheduling Line at 612.262.5533.

As part of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy, we continue to prioritize creating equitable access to vaccine for communities that have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and have historically faced disparities. Allina Health has hosted several successful community vaccine events and will continue hosting community-focused vaccine events in the future.
