Vaccines will be given at St. Luke’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, located at the corner of 9th Avenue E. and E. 1st Street on St. Luke's main campus in downtown Duluth. An appointment is required. Walk-ins are not allowed. We believe the centralized distribution model will allow us to vaccinate as many people as possible, as efficiently as possible. This may evolve to include additional locations in the future.
About the Vaccine
St. Luke’s is administering vaccines currently approved for use under Emergency Use Authorization. These include the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccines. These vaccines are safe and effective and have undergone rigorous testing from the Food and Drug Administration to ensure safety and efficacy. The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are each a 2-dose regimen, with the second dose given 21 days after the first for Pfizer, and 28 days after the first for Moderna. Second doses are scheduled when you come in for your first appointment. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single-dose. All of these vaccines are highly effective in preventing severe COVID-19 illness and hospitalizations.
There are no out-of-pocket costs for receiving the vaccine. Private insurance companies and government insurance programs like Medicare will fully cover the cost of administering the vaccine. For those who are uninsured, the cost will be fully covered.
Everyone is also encouraged to sign up for the State of Minnesota’s Vaccine Connector. It’s an online tool that helps people connect to vaccine opportunities when they become available. Visit vaccineconnector.mn.gov
This is truly a hopeful time for all of us to have this amazing resource to help protect our community. We understand people are incredibly anxious to get the vaccine, and we are doing everything we can to vaccinate as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.
