How to Register for the Covid 19 Vaccine

Updated: Feb 2, 2021

Prairie Lakes Healthcare System

For Codington County:

The Department of Health approves the implementation of each phase. Beginning January 18, Phase 1d will begin with the following criteria:

  • Individuals aged 80 and older

  • High-risk patients: dialysis, post-transplant, and active cancer

  • High-risk residents in congregate settings such as licensed independent living facilities and residents of licensed group homes

If you are a Codington County resident and are eligible to be in this group, you will be contacted directly if you are a patient of Brown Clinic, Sanford Clinic – Watertown, Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic, or Prairie Lakes Cancer Center as the vaccine is available. Eligible congregate settings were identified by the Department of Health and are receiving the vaccine.

The vaccine arrives at each healthcare facility in limited increments and has a limited shelf life. This means that not everyone who is within each group approved by the Department of Health will be contacted at the same time. We appreciate your patience!

Codington County residents who are 80 years old or older and not a patient of Brown Clinic, Sanford Clinic, Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic, or Prairie Lakes Cancer Center may sign up to be contacted using this form:

Ultimately, whether or not you get your COVID-19 vaccine depends on the vaccine supply. You will receive a vaccine dose when there’s one available. Phase 1d is anticipated to roll out slowly through March as over 265,000 people are included in these groups statewide.
