Rice County Public Health continues to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Rice County Government Services Building, 320 NW 3rd Street, Faribault, as well as other community locations. 

Upcoming vaccination clinics are Wednesday, January 12th from 12:30 – 4 p.m. with Pfizer vaccine and Thursday January 13th from 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. with Moderna vaccine.  

Vaccination clinics are for those seeking first, second, additional doses for immunocompromising conditions and booster doses. Please remember to bring your COVID-19 vaccination card if you have already received your first vaccination, so staff can update your card. 

Booster shots are now recommended for people ages 12 years and older.  The interval between the primary series and the booster is dependent on the vaccine that was administered for the primary series -- 5 month spacing after receiving either the Pfizer or Moderna primary series; 2 months spacing after the J&J one dose vaccination.
