As part of the efforts to confront the COVID-19 Pandemic, local health officials have continued to provide both testing and vaccination opportunities throughout the area.  Additionally, the announcement of the Minnesota state-wide Kids Deserve A Shot initiative to target teenagers has amped up those efforts.

Officials with St. Louis County Public Health continues to offer COVID-19 vaccine appointments at a variety of sites as well as COVID-19 testing opportunities.  Individuals can expect all three of the vaccine varieties at each of the sites:  Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna.  Additionally, St. Louis County provides Pfizer boosters for those who are eligible as well as the third doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for immunocompromised individuals.
