Patients looking for a site to receive the COVID-19 vaccine will now have two additional locations in Duluth. St. Luke's is expanding their COVID-19 vaccine clinic location sites by two to make three total in the Twin Ports.  The change is effective Monday, February 28.

Starting on that date, interested parties will find vaccinations available at St. Luke's Denfeld Medical Clinic for those age 5-plus, St. Luke's Infectious Disease Associated for those age 5-plus, and at St. Luke's Pediatric Associates for those age 5 to 18.  You will be able to get all three vaccine types (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson) at each site - first, second, and booster shots.

With the roll out of the three locations in Duluth, St. Luke's will also be closing their main COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic; that closure is effective after the business day ends on Thursday, February 24.

Anyone who is eligible according to the current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines can get their vaccination at any of these locations.  It's worth noting, though that with the transition to three vaccine clinic locations, appointments are required. You can schedule those appointments by calling the St. Luke's Vaccine Clinic Scheduling Line:  218-249-4200.

What Do I Do If I Lose My COVID-19 Vaccination Card?

When you get your COVID-19 vaccine, you're handed a card that details the date, manufacturer variety, and location of your dose. If you're getting one of the two-dose vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna), you'll need that card to coordinate your second and final dose. But even with the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and even after getting the second shot, you'll need to keep that card in a safe place.

While nationwide vaccine mandates aren't a thing at the present time, there are a variety of times you might need that card even after completing the vaccine process. Many schools (primary, secondary, and higher education) are requiring the COVID-19 vaccine similar to other vaccinations. Additionally, some entertainment venues and mass transportation are requiring either proof of a negative COVID test or the vaccine card.

So what happens if you lose it? Relax. There are ways of obtaining a replacement - and they differ slightly whether you've lost it before getting both doses or after.
