Local businesses provide door prizes for getting vaccinated

Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes is expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine with walk-in availability on Saturday, May 1, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the North Campus building, located at 114 E Frazee St.

As an added bonus, local businesses have donated a variety of prizes to be given away. Those who receive a vaccination on Saturday, or accompany someone receiving a vaccination, can enter a drawing for one of the donated door prizes. Additionally, anyone who has received a vaccine between April 25 and May 1, at any location, is eligible to stop by the vaccination clinic on Saturday and show their vaccination card to enter the drawing.

You do not need to be an Essentia patient to receive a vaccination. The Pfizer/BioNTech shot will be given at this clinic and available to all Minnesota residents age 16 and older. Patients under the age of 18 must bring this consent form, signed by their parent or legal guardian, to be eligible for the shot.

If you prefer, patients and non-patients can make an appointment through MyChart or by calling 833-494-0836.

Vaccination is our best opportunity to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Vaccines have been proven effective and safe. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were about 90% effective at preventing COVID infection, and nearly 100% effective at preventing hospitalizations and death.
