COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Call Glenwood Medical Center at 320.634.5157 to schedule an appointment.

Availability

Everyone 6 months and older is recommended to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Pediatric doses are available for children 6 months-11 years of age.

Boosters are highly encouraged and recommended for anyone 5 years and older.

Why are booster shots so important?

Vaccine effectiveness at preventing infection decreases over time because the body’s immune response wanes and the vaccine is less effective against changes in COVID-19 variants.

How to Obtain Proof of Your COVID Vaccine

When you get your first COVID-19 vaccine, you will be given a CDC-issued Vaccination Card. If your vaccination card is misplaced or incomplete, here is how you can obtain documentation. You may need proof of COVID-19 vaccination in the future so retain it for your records and/or keep it on your smartphone.

Safety and Effectiveness

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

Yes. They are safe and effective. Learn more about COVID-19 Vaccines and Safety in the United States.

Should I get vaccinated if I’ve already had COVID?

Yes. Due to the health risks associated with COVID and the fact that reinfection with COVID is possible, you should be vaccinated and boosted regardless of whether you already had COVID. Immune defenses tend to wane after an infection. Talk to your doctor if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine or a booster dose.
