Allina Health is proud to administer COVID-19 vaccines and we are providing vaccinations as quickly as we are able. Explore this page to learn about where, when and how you may receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Allina Health. Please check out our COVID-19 FAQs before you call or message your provider.

Who we're vaccinating now

Allina Health is continuing to vaccinate for impact by focusing on our patients and community members at greater risk for COVID-19, including people under age 65 with certain underlying health conditions. Patients over age 65 may also currently schedule a vaccine at Allina Health.

  • If you are on the high-risk group list, we will contact you when you are eligible. We will reach out directly by email, phone or letter to schedule your vaccination when you are eligible.
  • For all others, we will update this page in the coming weeks with more information about how we will serve all patients 16 and older. Check back before calling our scheduling center or your provider.
  • Consider other vaccination options in the meantime. If you have the opportunity to receive the vaccine somewhere else—at a state vaccination site or through your employer, for example—we encourage you to do it.

Where to get the vaccine

We have opened long-term and pop-up vaccination hubs across Allina Health. Locations may change, and we’ll continue to add sites as vaccine availability increases.

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).

Which vaccines are being administered

Allina Health administers vaccines that we 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, and most experts recommend getting whichever vaccine you’re offered the soonest. Visit fda.gov to learn more about vaccine safety and effectiveness.
