COVID-19 vaccine questions? We’ve got answers.
Information about COVID-19 vaccines is rapidly changing as we learn more about authorization, prioritization and distribution plans.
HealthPartners patients and members can find the most up-to-date details here. We'll keep this page constantly updated so you have the latest facts about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
When will I be able to get the COVID-19 Vaccine?
We don’t know yet exactly when our patients and members will have access to COVID-19 vaccines.
When we receive additional vaccine doses and we’re ready to vaccinate members of the public, we’ll share that information here, including how you can sign up and what to expect.
Is there a COVID-19 Vaccine waiting list? If so, how can I get on that list?
We’re awaiting guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health departments, about who will be eligible to be included in the first phases of vaccine distribution. Check back soon for more information
