[ARCHIVED] Time to Get Your COVID -19 Booster?

$50 Gift Card Incentive for those receiving first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine

Rice County Public Health will be hosting Moderna vaccination clinics at the Rice County Government Services Building, 320 NW 3rd Street, Faribault on Thursday November 4th from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Wednesday November 10th from 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Vaccinations will be available for first, second and booster doses. If you are coming for a second dose or a booster, please remember to bring your COVID-19 vaccination card so staff can update your card.

Booster shots are now available for those 18 years and older who previously received any of the authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson).

Minnesotans who got the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine SHOULD get a booster shot at least 6 months after their second dose of vaccine if they are:

• 65 years and older

• Residents 18 years and older in long-term care settings

• People 50–64 years old with specific underlying medical conditions

Minnesotans who got the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine MAY get a booster shot at least 6 months after their second dose of vaccine if they are:

• 18–49 years old with underlying medical conditions

• Health care workers and front-line essential workers ages 18-64 years old

All Minnesotans age 18 and older who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine SHOULD get a booster shot at least 2 months after their first dose.

Officials authorized “mixing and matching” COVID-19 vaccine boosters, meaning anybody who is eligible to get a booster shot can get any of the three currently authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines, regardless of which dose they received for their primary series.
