Grand Forks Expands Access to COVID-19 Vaccines, Ends Alerus Center Vaccinations

Grand Forks, N.D. – The City of Grand Forks, Grand Forks Public Health and Altru are excited to announce the expansion of locations where our community can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

At Altru, patients will be able to receive the vaccine at any primary care clinic location of their choosing, including at our four clinics in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks beginning April 26. To schedule an appointment for vaccination at one of these locations, use MyChart.Altru.org or call the COVID Hotline at 701.780.6358.

As part of this change, vaccinations at the Alerus Center will end in May.

As of today, there have been 31,421 doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered at the community vaccination clinics at the Alerus Center.

“Thank you Altru, Public Health, Alerus Center staff, UND, the ND National Guard, and countless volunteers for the tremendous efforts at the community vaccine clinics.” Grand Forks Mayor Brandon Bochenski said. “It has been a model for the State and Nation in efficiency and safety.”

The last opportunity for people in our community to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Alerus Center will be Wednesday, April 21. To schedule an appointment at the Alerus Center, please call the COVID Hotline at 701.780.6358 or anyone 18 and older can use MyChart.Altru.org and select “Scheduling an Appointment for COVID Vaccine.”

Anyone who has already scheduled a first or second dose vaccination appointment, at the Alerus Center, will be able to receive their vaccine at the Alerus Center.
