FEBRUARY 8, 2021 – Northfield Hospital + Clinics is now contacting patients 75+ to schedule COVID vaccination appointments. Supply is very limited. Appointments are being offered in order of age. The number of appointments depends on the amount of vaccine available.
You must hear from NH+C before scheduling an appointment. PLEASE DO NOT CALL.
NH+C vaccinated more than 400 people age 80 and older on Saturday, February 6. NH+C will vaccinate patients 75 and older, plus healthcare workers, on Tuesday, February 9. NH+C will vaccinate teachers and school staff on Wednesday, February 10 in partnership with Rice County Public Health and school districts. A waitlist is now available for people 65 and older who live in NH+C's service area.
Current patients of NH+C clinics are contacted in order of age (oldest first). The number of patients we contact depends on how much vaccine we have available. We contact patients by phone call and text. Current patients do not need to contact us to get on this list.
Current patients of Allina Clinic in Northfield who have been Northfield Hospital patients are contacted in order of age (oldest first) based on Allina criteria. Allina contacts its eligible patients by phone call or email with further instructions. All Allina patients continue to be eligible for randomized vaccinations at Allina’s own vaccination hubs.
If you are not an NH+C patient or Allina patient and you are 65 or older and live in NH+C’s service area, you may sign up on a waitlist. Fill out the COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist Form at northfieldhospital.org for an invitation when vaccine is available. Appointments will be offered in order of age (oldest first). The number of appointments depends on the amount of vaccine available.
If you are contacted and your spouse is also eligible, we will schedule appointments for you both at the same time.
We will schedule your first and second doses (3 or 4 weeks apart) at the same time.
If you are contacted, you will be given a phone number to call to schedule your appointment. It’s important to call us at that number as soon as you can, because we have limited slots available.
This phone number is not for the general public. Callers will not be able to schedule an appointment at this phone number if they have not previously heard from us.
NH+C’s goal is to vaccinate people in our community as efficiently as possible with the limited vaccine we have at this time. We are committed to serving all members of our community.
We encourage you to seek other options for vaccine too. See options at mn.gov/covid19. It’s a good idea to try to get the vaccine through more than one organization. We don’t know how much or how frequently we will get vaccine.
