Dakota County Public Health will begin COVID-19 vaccinations for county residents 65 and older by appointment at clinics March 8–12.
The county will only vaccinate the following:
• People 65 and older living in Dakota County. Proof of where you live is required (ID, utility bill, Medicare card, etc.)
• Educators living or working in Dakota County. School ID or pay stub is required.
• Child care workers living or working in Dakota County. Work ID, paystub or license is required.
• Health care workers living or working in Dakota County. Work ID or paystub is required.
• Direct care providers living or working in Dakota County. Work ID or paystub required.
• Residents and workers in Dakota County longterm care, assisted-living and congregate care facilities. Work ID or paystub is required for workers. Proof of residency is not required for residents, but encouraged if you have it (ID, utility bill, etc.).
You must be in one of the above groups to receive a vaccine from Dakota County Public Health. You will be turned away at the clinic if it is not your turn, even if you made an appointment. Making appointments out of turn slows the vaccination effort, which delays vaccinations for those who need it most.
