Upcoming vaccination clinic at Essentia Health-Wahpeton Clinic

Essentia Health-Wahpeton Clinic will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 27. The clinic is located at 275 11th St S, Wahpeton.

This vaccination clinic will be open to anyone age 12 and older. You do not need to be a patient of Essentia Health to receive a vaccination. Anyone under the age of 18 must have parent or legal guardian consent to be eligible for the shot. Parents or guardians can print and sign this consent form or they can accompany their child to the clinic.

Both walk-ins and scheduled appointments will be available. Patients and non-patients can make an appointment through Essentia’s MyChart patient portal or by calling (833) 494-0836.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called the safety monitoring for COVID vaccines “the most intense and comprehensive in U.S. history.” Through the first 150 million doses administered in the U.S., there were about 50,000 adverse reactions, with less than 8,000 of those categorized as serious. That equates to a 0.0003% chance of adverse reaction for the overall population.

All three vaccines currently available in the U.S. — Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — are remarkably effective at preventing COVID infections, and all three are almost 100% effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children increasingly are accounting for more of the United States’ new COVID cases, underscoring the importance of immunization among adolescents.
