    Polk County Public Health, along with our local healthcare and pharmacy partners, are making great progress with COVID-19 vaccine distribution in our community. If you or someone you know is 65 years of age or older and have not been vaccinated, please reach out to your healthcare provider, pharmacy, or Polk County Public Health at 218.281.3385.

    “As vaccine availability continues to increase, we are committed to working closely with our local partners to vaccinate eligible individuals as quickly as possible following the guidance from the State of Minnesota” said Sarah Reese, Director, Polk County Public Health. As more vaccine becomes available, everyone will have the opportunity to receive it.

    Please continue to do your part by slowing the spread of COVID-19 by practicing preventative habits such as wearing a mask, staying 6 feet from others, washing your hands often and staying home if sick.
