Here's where Grand Forks Public Health will be offering COVID-19 vaccines this week
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.
Beyond pharmacies, hospitals and other healthcare providers, Grand Forks Public Health staff have organized seven “mobile” COVID-19 vaccine 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 Monday, July 5, a total of 30,543 Grand Forks County residents had been fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus. That figure is about 44% of all county residents and about 73% of the way to the threshold at which health department staff hope the county reaches “herd” immunity, in which it’s statistically unlikely that the virus can spread beyond an initial infection.
