PARK RAPIDS, Minn. – Sanford Health will be hosting a one-day COVID-19 vaccine blitz from noon-4 p.m. on Thursday, Apr. 8, at the Sanford Park Rapids Clinic—110 Seventh St. W, Park Rapids, MN 56470.

The clinic will be offering the single dose, Johnson and Johnson vaccine by appointment only to anyone who is 18 years-old or older and would like a vaccine. Being a patient of Sanford Health is not a requirement.

Vaccinations will only be administered with an appointment. To schedule an appointment for the one-day vaccination event in Park Rapids, community members can call (877) 701-0779.

What to expect

Upon calling the vaccine clinic phone number, patients will be instructed where/when to go to receive their vaccine. The appointment and COVID-19 vaccine are at no cost to the recipient.

People will be observed on-site for 15 minutes after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The most common side effects are injection site pain, soreness and swelling.

Preferences for which brand of vaccine a person receives will not be accepted. The Johnson and Johnson vaccine does not require a second booster dose.

Due to current manufacturer age restrictions, those who are 16 or 17 years-old may not receive the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or the Moderna vaccine. However, they may receive the Pfizer vaccine at a nearby location by calling (877) 701-0779 to schedule an appointment.
