When Can I Get a COVID Vaccine?

Starting March 8, adults aged 65 and older will be able to register online and by phone for a COVID vaccine in Goodhue County. We are also collaborating with community partners to assist community members with the registration process.

Each Monday at 8:30 a.m., an online link and phone line will go live. These will both be on a first come, first serve basis.
o If you do not have the opportunity to register one week, please come back the following week for another opportunity to register to receive a COVID vaccine. GCHHS is not building a cumulative, permanent waitlist for future clinics. Each week a limited number of people will be able to register themselves for that week’s vaccine clinics waitlist. This is so vaccine doses do not go to waste if someone has to cancel, re-schedule or doesn't show up for their appointment.
o If you need assistance or do not have access to the internet, please call 651-385-2000 starting at 8:30 a.m. on Mondays to register by phone.

Important for registration:

  •   your appointment will be the same week you register
o GCHHS COVID Vaccinations Clinics are Wednesday – Friday of each week. You will receive location details during the time of registration.
  •   required information to register
o Mother’s maiden name, phone number, and an email address. (If the person who is eligible does not have an email address, then please use an email address of a trusted friend or family member.)
During the registration process, there will be questions regarding the Moderna vaccine ingredients and your history of allergic reactions. Please be prepared to answer these questions.
o If you are uncertain about possible allergies to Moderna ingredients, talk to your doctor before you call or register online. Our registration staff are not able to give medical advice.
To date, Goodhue County Health and Human Services (GCHHS) has administered vaccines to:
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Health care providers
  • School educators
These groups are a part of the Phase 1A priority group as stated by Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). Vaccination clinics have been held throughout the county in Red Wing, Zumbrota, Kenyon and Cannon Falls.

Health care systems, local pharmacies, federally qualified health centers, hospitals, local public health facilities, and state-run community vaccination sites have been activated to help with the Vaccine rollout. We are proceeding as quickly as possible to get people vaccinated as soon as they are eligible. There continues to be a very limited supply of COVID vaccine in Minnesota.
