GRAND FORKS — Altru is now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination for children 6-months-old through 4-years-old.

Vaccination appointments can be scheduled in Grand Forks by calling the Nurse Advice Line at 701-780-6358 or via MyChart.Altru.org.

For families who live near one of Altru's regional clinics, they are asked to call the clinic closest to them or speak with their child’s primary care provider for more details.

“We are so happy our tiniest patients are now able to receive protection from the most severe effects of COVID-19,” said Heather Strandell, director of primary care operations at Altru. “The COVID-19 vaccine can be administered along with other routine immunizations on the same day or a few days later.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
