Did You Know? More than 75% of Washington County residents 12 years and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as of August 1, 2021. The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that all eligible students get vaccinated before returning to in-person school, sports, or other extracurricular activities.
Getting vaccinated is easy:
- Visit one of the weekly COVID-19 vaccine clinics in Stillwater. Schedule an appointment online or walk in.
- Visit Find Vaccine Locations, contact a health care provider or local pharmacy, or go to Vaccines.gov to find a COVID-19 vaccine near you.
Despite high vaccination rates, COVID-19 cases in Washington County have trended upward over the past month. The Delta variant — which spreads about twice as easily from one person to another — is responsible for the majority of new COVID-19 cases in the state and across the country.
