COVID-19 Vaccine 

Distribution Data for 

OT County Public Health

As of March 25, Public Health has administered at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine to 2,394 people, with 1,663 completing the vaccine series. Those receiving vaccine thus far at public health clinics have been part of the phase 1a priority group, and phase 1b essential workers with a focus on food processing employees.

Do I need a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes, for the COVID-19 vaccines that need two doses, it is important for people to receive both doses, and that both doses are the same vaccine product. Make every effort to keep the second doses within the recommended interval. If the interval is missed, the second dose should be received as soon as possible. The series does not need to be restarted. If you received your first doses from Otter Tail County Public Health and have not scheduled or missed your second dose appointment, please call 218-998-8320.

I have completed my 

COVID-19 vaccine 

doses now what?

The CDC states that If you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and it has been at least 2 weeks since the final dose of vaccine you have good protection against illness for yourself. However, it is important to follow these recommendations when visiting an unvaccinated person.

• You can gather indoors with smaller groups of fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask. Avoid larger gatherings.

• You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

It is still important to continue to follow public health guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 even after you have been vaccinated.

Reminders for 

the community

Confirmed COVID-19 cases and positivity rates are showing an upward trend in recent weeks, we urge residents to continue to follow public health guidance. As more people get vaccinated and restrictions begin to ease, we may be tempted to return to our previous behaviors but please continue to

• wear masks in public (including those vaccinated),

• stay home when sick,

• socially distance,

• and follow gathering recommendations.
