Kanabec County Community Health & Welia Health 65+ Vaccination Clinic Information
Kanabec County Community Health and Welia Health have partnered to begin vaccinating those 65 and older in our communities. Currently, the demand for vaccine exceeds the supply. In addition to the limited supply, when vaccine becomes available it is often with the stipulation that the vaccine be utilized within a short period of time.
Kanabec County Residents and/or current Welia Health patients that wish to be placed on a waiting list can call (320) 679-6330. Individuals on the waiting list will be contacted as additional vaccination clinics are scheduled.
PLEASE NOTE: Vaccine supply remains limited.

MN Vaccination Dashboard Click Here.
The dashboard, produced by Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), provides a visual and user-friendly way to view key vaccination data for our state. The dashboard includes information on the number of doses promised (allocated) to the state by the federal government; shipped to Minnesota providers; and administered to Minnesotans. The dashboard will be updated daily.
Contact Tracing and Investigation Information.
An individual identified as having a laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 will receive a phone call from one of our public health staff. During the interview, the public health staff will ask where they spend their time and who they have had close contact with. Those identified will be contacted by phone for symptomatic monitoring, and suggested MDH guidelines for self-quarantine and isolation.
As these case and contact investigations begin it is especially important that those contacted answer/accept phone calls or return messages left by the public health staff. As our public health staff increases their capacity to conduct all case investigations in Kanabec County, please note that MDH will also conduct some of the investigations.
