Steele County Public Health is hosting drive-thru vaccination clinics October 3rd through 23rd across the county in Owatonna, Medford, Blooming Prairie, and Ellendale.

The initial plan is to offer just flu shots, but if the new Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is available, the county will also be offering that shot at their clinics. This updated vaccine specifically targets the COVID-19 strains that are currently circulating within our communities and plays a crucial role in providing protection against severe illness and hospitalization caused by COVID-19.
