DIW is serving the entire Twin Cities American Indian community in a variety of ways, including a Covid-19 hotline open 8 am-8 pm Monday-Friday (651-304-9986). We’re deeply proud that our DIW was chosen for this important role.
Every Minnesotan age 16 years and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine. All COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. Contact your health care provider, check local pharmacies, or sign up on the Vaccine Connector. We still do not have enough vaccines for everyone who wants one, so you may have to wait to get an appointment. It takes two weeks after your final dose for your body to build up protection.
