As the holidays draw closer, Essentia Health is making it easier for a newly eligible group to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Detroit Lakes.

On Friday Nov. 12, Essentia will be holding a vaccination event for 5-11 year olds. The event at the Essentia Health North Campus Building-Detroit Lakes, located at 114 Frazee St. E, is free and open to the public.
