St. Luke’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic in Duluth is open and vaccinating primary care patients who are 75 and older.
Eligible patients are being contacted by St. Luke's to schedule a vaccination. People should not call to inquire about scheduling an appointment.
While the state says patients 65 and older are eligible, St. Luke’s is focusing on patients 75 and older — about 8,000 people — to offer vaccines to those at highest risk. A randomized list is used to ensure the vaccine is distributed fairly. Vaccines are being prioritized based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Minnesota Department of Health because supply is limited, according to a news release from St. Luke's.
St. Luke’s has 400 appointment slots per day. Once appointments are offered to all patients age 75 and older, St. Luke’s will immediately move to calling a randomized list of patients who are 65 and older. This is a larger group of about 11,000 people.
St. Luke’s patients who live in Wisconsin are eligible to receive a vaccine in Minnesota. They will be called and offered an appointment.
Vaccines will be given at St. Luke’s hospital, 915 E. First St., Duluth. Additional locations may open in the future. Vaccine appointments may need to be rescheduled based on supply.
