Minot Area Community Calendar


Trinity Health announced they have moved in to Phase 1B of the North Dakota Department of Health's Priority Group: https://www.health.nd.gov/covid-19-vaccine-priority-groups

Currently we are identifying and contacting our at-risk patients who are 75 and older throughout our region. If you receive an invitation from Trinity Health via text, email, and/or voicemail, PLEASE RESPOND IMMEDIATELY! Vaccine supply is very limited and we are scheduling appointments only for confirmed responses from the invitations we send out.

As vaccine becomes available, we will continue to contact patients directly when they meet the criteria at the time. Because we follow the State’s plan based on Priority Groups, Trinity Health is not maintaining a waiting list of all patients who want the vaccine. Please DO NOT call your Trinity Health provider to request an appointment for vaccination.
