Proctor Hosting Community Vaccine Clinic Wednesday
If you have yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19, there is another terrific opportunity Wednesday in Proctor and there are still appointments available.
The Proctor Community Vaccine Clinic will take place Wednesday, April 28, from 11:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the Proctor Rails Turf Facility. This is located at the Proctor Fair Grounds, 800 N Boundary Avenue.
At this clinic, the Pfizer vaccine will be administered. Because of that, anyone age 16+ can be vaccinated. Anyone who is 16 or 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent, or be living independently and emancipated from their parents.
The Pfizer vaccine requires a second dose 3 weeks after the initial vaccination shot and that follow-up appointment will be scheduled at the same location. If you cannot make the second appointment, you should get a COVID-19 vaccine at a different vaccine clinic or facility.
As of April 24, 2021, the number of Minnesotans who have had at least one vaccine dose was 2,459,629. A total of 1,805,781 Minnesotans had completed their vaccine series. The means that as of that date, 56% of Minnesotans age 16 or older have received at least the first vaccine dose.

Health officials stress that in order to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, more vaccinations need to take place not only in Minnesota, but across the United States.
