The City of Grand Forks will offer COVID-19 vaccinations in phases.
The City of Grand Forks, the Grand Forks Public Health Department and Altru Health System will work in partnership to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine. They will follow the prioritization established by the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH).
Who is eligible to receive the vaccine?
Due to the limited amount of vaccine, the NDDoH has established vaccine priority groups.
Review the COVID-19 Vaccine Ethics FAQs for additional information on how the priority groups were established in North Dakota.
What group is currently being vaccinated in Grand Forks?
Refer to the Grand Forks Public Health Department website for the most up-to-date information on the vaccine priority groups currently being vaccinated in our local area.
As additional doses become available, individuals in future priority groups will become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and will be notified by the media. UND will continue to send out information as it becomes available from the City.
Are vaccines required at UND?
At this time, UND is not requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for faculty, staff or students, including for those eligible under the priority group guidelines.
However, if any eligible individual also works in another health care or other employment setting that requires the vaccine, they should follow that employer’s policies.
What is UND’s vaccination process?
UND is referring faculty, staff and students to follow the vaccination process laid out by the Grand Forks Public Health Department. Please contact the COVID-19 hotline if you have any questions.
This is a fluid situation and is subject to change.
Do I need to wear a mask and physical distance after I'm vaccinated?
Yes. You need to continue to do these things.
Though the vaccines are 95% effective at preventing infections, 5 out of 100 people can still become infected and spread COVID-19. Mitigation measures must be maintained until we reach herd immunity through the vaccine.
