11 mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics planned this week in Grand Forks
Grand Forks city leaders decentralized the city's COVID-19 vaccination plan in the spring, which means roving vaccine clinics throughout the summer. Grand Forks Public Health staff have scheduled seven such clinics the week of July 6.
Grand Forks Public Health staff have organized 11 mobile COVID-19 clinics this week.
People who visit any of the clinics can get a one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or the second dose needed to be fully vaccinated via a two-shot Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
A list of the health department’s scheduled vaccine clinics is below. Some may be staffed by "partners" such as Wall's Pharmacy.
As of Sunday, July 11, 30,734 Grand Forks County residents had been fully vaccinated against the virus -- about 200 more people than the same time last week. Public health administrators hope getting 60% of all county residents vaccinated will mean the county has reached "herd" immunity, in which there is little room for the virus to spread beyond an initial infection. The figure from the 11th represents about 44.3% of county residents.
