Many of you are requesting more information on the COVID-19 vaccine. So much of our community is eager to receive it, and Community Memorial Hospital looks forward to administering it.
That said, CMH must follow strict guidelines from federal and state governments involving who can receive the vaccine first. COVID-19 vaccinations are ultimately subject to availability at this time.
This webpage will address a number of common questions involving the vaccine:
At this time, appointments are not available. However, if you are 65 years of age and older, you can register your interest in receiving the COVID vaccine by completing the form below. As CMH receives the COVID vaccine, eligible patients that complete the form will be contacted to schedule an appointment. Due to limited vaccine supply, we cannot guarantee that you will be called to schedule an appointment after filling out the form.
If you qualify for the vaccine and are a current CMH patient, you will receive a notification via text, phone, or email indicating next steps for registering your interest in receiving a vaccine.
Initially, anyone age 65 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine in the state of Minnesota, along with people ages 18 to 64 with underlying health conditions. These criteria are subject to change; please continue to monitor this page for updates from CMH and state health officials.
The COVID-19 vaccine will eventually be available to everyone who wants it. Before we get to that point, however, Community Memorial Hospital must adhere to strict state guidelines regarding who is eligible to receive the vaccine based on the current supply.
The CDC’s Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) determined which priority groups will receive the COVID-19 vaccine first. Then, the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation Advisory Group reviewed this information and made recommendations for our state.
Community Memorial Hospital has been actively involved in administering the vaccine to targeted population groups since vaccine first became available, and we anticipate ongoing involvement. We will continue to update our community as we learn more
We know that waiting for the COVID-19 vaccine is difficult. The pandemic has transformed the way we live and work, and we recognize the stress this has placed on our community.
Please know that we are in close contact with state and federal authorities, and that we will support the rollout of the vaccine however we can these next few months.
There continues to be a very limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine in Minnesota. We are collecting a list of interested people in order to be prepared once we receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
