Covid-19 Vaccine

Scenic Rivers Health Services is collaborating with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to provide Covid-19 vaccine administration.  We have been provided a small amount of vaccine to be administered based on Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and MDH guidelines.   Consequently, we will be immunizing patients 75 and older and patients 65 and older with high risk underlying conditions.  These populations are the most vulnerable to Covid-19.

As we receive vaccine we will be scheduling our patients based on randomized lists of patients meeting the above noted MDH criteria.  PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE CLINIC as we are being inundated with calls which could interfere with routine and urgent patient needs.

Scenic Rivers is very excited to be helping our patients during this pandemic and will reach out to you as soon as more vaccine becomes available.   Thank you for your patience as we await further vaccine distribution.

Covid-19 Drive-Up Testing Available By Appointment

As indicated by the Minnesota Department of Health, Scenic Rivers Health Services’ six medical clinics are designated Covid-19 drive-up testing locations.  If you have Covid-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell), or you feel you have been exposed to Covid-19 through someone with a known positive Covid-19 test result please call your local clinic site.  Your call will be screened to determine if you meet the criteria for Covid-19 testing.  If you meet the criteria an appointment for drive-up testing will be scheduled for you.  Please note criteria may change based on latest Centers for Disease Control and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines.

Do not walk in or drive up without an appointment.  You can only be tested after screening and scheduled appointment.

No payment is due at the time of testing.  If you are insured, your insurance company will be billed.    If you are uninsured, testing charges will be waived as determined through the CARES Act.  Scenic Rivers will not bill patients for Covid-19 testing.

Please call your local Scenic Rivers Medical Clinic if you’d like to donate. Thank you to all the members of our communities who have already donated!
