Questions about the Covid-19 Vaccine?

Does your practice currently have the Covid-19 vaccine available?

Not at this time. We have been approved by the State as a vaccination site for the State of South Dakota. We anticipate having our vaccine supply within the next few weeks.

When can I expect to receive my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine?

We are partnering with the state government to administer the Covid-19 vaccine as it becomes available to the general public, following the CDC priority schedule. We do not have start date currrently but expect to start vaccinating patients as soon as our supply becomes available. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, please contact our office and we will notify you when the vaccine is available!

What is the Vaccine Phase Schedule?

The CDC has created a public health priority schedule ensure highest risk patients are inoculated first. Our state is in Phase 1D.
