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.
Appointments are encouraged and can be scheduled using the MyChart patient portal., or by calling (833) 494-0836. However, walk-ins will be accepted as well. Appointments will be accepted from 9:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The vaccine has been proven safe and effective for children. It is a lower dose (10 micrograms) than that used for individuals ages 12 and older (30 micrograms).
Anyone under the age of 18 must bring this consent form, signed by a parent or guardian.
