Dave Lee, Director of Public Health and Human Services shares “Carlton County’s vaccination rates are some of the highest in the state. We are encouraged by the number of residents who are taking precautions to protect themselves and others.” As a reminder, getting a vaccine helps to protect those in our community who might be at higher risk, not only for a person’s own protection. Lee follows up by saying, “our community is growing in protection with the vaccine, but we also encourage residents to follow the protection measures we also know work like masking, social distancing, and getting tested if symptomatic.” COVID-19 testing locations can be found here: https://mn.gov/covid19/get-tested/testing-locations/index.jsp.
If a person signed up through the MN COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, this does not schedule you for an appointment, and you may not receive a call to schedule an appointment; a person’s best plan is to reach out to a registered vaccinator to schedule an appointment. Carlton County is a registered vaccinator, and other options can be found using the Vaccine Finder: https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/find-vaccine/locations/index.jsp.
