COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Seeking your first COVID vaccine or a booster shot?

Call Glenwood Medical Center’s specific COVID Vaccination Line at 320.331.2121 to request an appointment and we’ll call you to schedule.

All vaccinations and COVID testing at Glacial Ridge Hospital/Glenwood Medical Center must be scheduled. Walk-in vaccinations and testing are not available. 

How to Obtain Proof of Your COVID-19 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 to attend events, travel, or for other reasons in the future so retain it for your records and/or keep it on your smartphone.

Availability

Everyone 5 years and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Boosters are now recommended for everyone ages 18+. If you received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, it is recommended to get a booster 6 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series (2 shots). People who received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine should get a booster if it’s been at least 2 months since their shot. Mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccines is allowed for booster shots. Call GRHS’s COVID-19 Vaccine Line at 320.331.2121 to request a vaccine. 

Bring your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card with you to your appointment if you need another shot of COVID-19 vaccine so your provider can fill in the information about your additional shot.

Where do I receive my vaccine?

Call Glenwood Medical Center’s COVID Vaccination Line at 320.331.2121 to request a vaccine appointment. Once we have your information, we will call you to schedule. You are encouraged to get the vaccine whenever you are able.

How much will it cost to get vaccinated?

Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. However, vaccination providers can charge an administration fee for giving someone the shot. Vaccination providers can be reimbursed for this by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund. No one can be denied a vaccine if they are unable to pay the vaccine administration fee.

Safety and Effectiveness

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

Yes. All possible vaccine candidates are in various stages of testing in humans to ensure they are both safe and effective. Learn more about Ensuring the Safety of COVID-19 Vaccines in the United States.

Should I get vaccinated if I’ve already had COVID-19?

Yes. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection. Talk to your doctor if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

If I get the COVID-19 vaccine, do I still need to take other precautions?

Yes, even if you get vaccinated, it is recommended you continue with the other prevention measures you’ve been doing, such as washing your hands, wearing a mask indoors, staying six feet apart, and limiting gatherings. This will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to people who are not able to be vaccinated.
