CROSBY — COVID-19 vaccinations for 5- to 11-year old children are now being offered by appointment at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Crosby Clinic Monday through Friday afternoons.

Parents may call 218-546-7462 to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment for their children. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered, so a second appointment will also be required for a second dose three weeks later at the same appointment time. Youths must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to provide consent.

After obtaining the vaccination, children will be asked to remain at the clinic with their parent or guardian for 15 minutes so they may be monitored by medical personnel for any reaction. The vaccine is free but a charge for vaccine administration is billed to insurance. CRMC will enter the vaccination information into each patient’s Minnesota immunization record.
