COVID-19 vaccines

Allina Health is seeing very high demand for COVID-19 vaccine boosters, and as a result, we have limited vaccine appointment availability at this time. We are sorry for this inconvenience. Please use your Allina Health account to check back with us in a few weeks, as new appointments may become available. Your Allina Health account is the best way to try and schedule a booster versus trying to call, due to high call volumes and longer-than-usual hold times. The same appointments are available through both methods.

If you are eligible for a booster and you don't want to wait for an Allina Health opening, you may try instead to make an appointment at a local retail pharmacy, state vaccination site or other locations offering vaccines. Search for other vaccine locations now:

Use your Allina Health account to schedule the appointments you need. If your child has their own account, they can sign in into it to schedule. If you access your child's account through your Allina Health account, then you can sign in to schedule on your child's behalf.

Which vaccines are being administered

When you schedule, you will be able to select from several locations to find one that is most convenient for you or to fit the type of vaccine you prefer (see chart below).

Note that only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for use with patients ages 5-17, and for this age group parental consent (either verbal or written) is required.

Allina Health administers vaccines that are allocated from the government, and that may change from week to week. All FDA-approved vaccines are safe and effective at preventing moderate or severe complications from COVID-19. While rare and serious side effects have been reported, the CDC and FDA have concluded that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks. You can learn more about these vaccines and potential health impacts at fda.gov. If you have any concerns about symptoms or side effects of any COVID-19 vaccine, please contact your health care provider directly.

Allina Health is not currently taking appointments to give the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.

masks required

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of all of our patients, visitors and health care workers; we do still require masks be worn at all our locations, regardless of vaccination status.
