WADENA — Wadena County Public Health is hosting free COVID-19 vaccine clinics on Fridays in April.

The clinics are April 8, 22 and 29 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Wadena clinic, 22 SE Dayton Avenue.

During this time of COVID-19, Public Health is asking people to come by “appointment only” and wear a mask so the vaccine can be administered in a safe manner, according to a Public Health news release. To reserve a time slot, ask questions or see about a different appointment time, call 218-631-7629.

Public Health has appointments available for people 18 years old and older for the Moderna vaccine. Booster doses are also available. All Minnesotans are encouraged to get a booster dose after their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, according to the release. Minnesotans are able to receive any of the approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines as a booster dose regardless of which COVID-19 vaccine they received for their primary series.

If you are moderately to severely immunocompromised, call for more information.
