Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter offering extended vaccination times

As Essentia Health aims to connect everybody who wants a vaccination with a shot, we are expanding opportunities for those in the Brainerd Lakes area. Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter clinic is extending their COVID-19 vaccination hours on a limited basis.

On Wednesday’s June 2, June 23, and June 30, the vaccination clinic will be open until 6 p.m. The extended hours allow those working a day job, or students increased availability to get the shot without having to take time away from work or class.

On Saturday’s June 5 and June 26, we will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will be accepting first dose appointments on June 5 and immediately scheduling second dose appointments on June 26 so patients can easily and seamlessly get their vaccine series scheduled and completed.

Walk-ins will be accepted, but making an appointment is encouraged as it is the best way to ensure you can receive a vaccination.

During the extended time periods, those 12 and older will be able to receive the shot. Patients and non-patients can make an appointment by using MyChart or by calling (833) 494-0836.

Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter is still offering vaccinations Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
