Here's where Grand Forks' mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be this week

Jul. 26—Grand Forks Public Health workers hope to set up one of their mobile vaccine clinics within half a mile of 95% of Grand Forks residents. They've scheduled 11 such clinics this week, all of which are in Grand Forks proper.

At those clinics, health care providers are on hand to administer Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which require only a single shot, and the necessary second doses of the two-shot Moderna and Pfizer vaccine. Some of those clinics may be staffed by health department partners, such as Wall's Pharmacy, rather than health department workers.

The health department hopes at least 60% of all Grand Forks County residents get vaccinated against the novel coronavirus. As of Sunday, July 25, about 30,900 county residents had been fully vaccinated, according to North Dakota Department of Health data collated by the local health department. That figure represents about 40.5% of the the county population — a figure that virtually hasn't changed in the past week. Michael Dulitz, the health department's COVID-19 data and analytics leader, said that's because a state audit of vaccine data presumably reduced the number of fully vaccinated county residents that was recorded last week.
