Vaccine pre-registration available to homebound county residents
Crow Wing County Public Health continues to follow the priority guidance for the COVID-19 by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Minnesota Department of Health.
COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration is now available for Crow Wing County homebound residents age 65 and older.
The opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in one’s own home is for residents who are unable to travel to primary care providers or have difficulty in getting to a medical provider. Homebound vaccinations may take longer to get, as the availability of vaccinations is limited.
“We ask the community to reserve this option for those truly homebound and in need,” stated Crow Wing County Public Health Supervisor Michelle Moritz in a news release.
To register online, visit www.crowwing.us and click on “Register Now.” To register by phone, call 218-824-1289. (Those who have already received their first dose of the vaccine should not register.)
“Having a list of individuals we will need to go and visit will be crucial when we have access to more vaccines. Every step we take in this planning process will help us move forward faster with vaccine distribution,” Moritz stated.
Those with questions about COVID-19, may call 218-824-1170 or email Covid.email@example.com .
