Vaccine Clinic Information
COVID-19 vaccine is readily available for our community and CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health/Hubbard County Public Health continues to vaccinate community members.
Anyone wanting to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination is encouraged to contact CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health at 218.237.5464. There is no charge for a COVID-19 vaccine through CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health. Vaccine is also available by contacting your health care provider.
Currently the new positive COVID-19 cases are those in younger age categories and it is imperative we make a collective effort to protect each other and do our part to stop this pandemic. We encourage the community to take advantage of vaccination opportunities, whether through Community Health or through their own health care provider. The public should continue taking precautions – wearing masks, staying home when sick, washing hands, and avoiding large gatherings. Thank you for your continued support and please do your part to stay safe and healthy.

Pfizer Booster Doses
Below is information containing booster recommendations and an upcoming CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health COVID-19 Booster Clinic.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) on 9.24.21 for the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine to allow for use of a single booster dose in certain populations. The following groups should get a Pfizer booster at least 6 months after their second dose:
● People 65 years and older
● Residents in long-term care facilities
● People ages 50-64 with certain underlying medical conditions (see CDC – People with Certain Medical Conditions)
The following groups may get a Pfizer booster dose at least 6 months after their second dose, if the personal benefits for them outweigh any personal risks:
● People ages 18-49 who are at high risk for severe COVID-19 due to certain underlying medical conditions (see CDC – People with Certain Medical Conditions)
● People ages 18-64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of where they live or work.
Community Health will be holding a drive-through clinic for 3rd doses of Pfizer vaccine for those who received their 2nd doses at least 6 months ago on 10/14/2021. The clinic will take place in the parking lot at the Community Health location on Highway 34.
● Online pre-registration and proof of previous vaccination required
Booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are not FDA approved and therefore unavailable.
*Despite road construction, the Community Health office remains accessible.
Please call the Community Health office at 218.237.5464 if more information is needed.
