COVID-19 Vaccine

ALL Minnesotans age 16 and older can now get the COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to get the vaccine as soon as you can, wherever you can, even if it isn't at MCHC.

If you still need the vaccine, send an email to our vaccine request address VAX@mchospital.org or call the vaccine request voice mail line at 507.642.5214. In your message, please include:

  • First Name, Middle Name, Last Name
  • Phone Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Employer or Health Condition

When vaccine is available, we will call to set up an appointment. Please note, the Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine that is available for 16 and 17- year-olds.

We will also continue to vaccinate people in the other groups and tiers. 

The State of Minnesota allocates limited quantities of the vaccine to facilities like MCHC an Lake Crystal Pharmacy. We do not know how much or what kind of vaccine will be supplied until a few days before it arrives. The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses, 21 days apart; the Moderna vaccine requires two doses, 28 days apart. For these vaccines, the patient needs to be available for two appointments to receive both doses. We are also sometimes receivng the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) product, which only requires one shot. 

If you are contacted by another health care system, by the state or county first, we encourage you to get the vaccine as soon as possible. Please do not make appointments with two different entities.

We encourage patients to watch our Facebook page and our website for the latest information and announcements regarding vaccine distribution.  

Concerns about the vaccine’s effectiveness and side effects have been minimal. The risks of COVID-19 far outweigh any risk from the vaccine.
