St. Croix Regional Medical Center knows that many patients are very excited about receiving their COVID-19 vaccine. We are now vaccinating any individual that is age 18+, please call to schedule your appointment. 715-202-5547.

St. Croix Regional Medical Center is working closely with Public Health and following CDC and state guidelines for the vaccine distribution. We appreciate your patience and understanding!

For patients that have received a Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine, the FDA and CDC have asked vaccinators to pause on administering this vaccine as of Tues 4/13 while they review recent safety data. The pause is because a very small number of people who got it had a very rare side effect – a blood clot.

We want you to know these severe events are very rare. So far, 6.8 million doses were given and only 6 cases of this rare blood clot were reported nationwide. We want you to monitor for the following symptoms for three weeks after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine:

  • severe headache
  • abdominal pain
  • leg pain
  • shortness of breath

If you develop any of these symptoms, contact your healthcare provider, or seek medical care promptly. In addition, please use the V-Safe program to report your symptoms to the CDC.

We care about your health and safety. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. 715-202-5547.

Consider your vaccination options. If you have the opportunity to receive the vaccine somewhere else—at a state vaccination site or through your employer, for example—we encourage you to do it.

Both the Minnesota Department of Health and Wisconsin Department of Health Services are sharing information about vaccine inventory, distribution, and prioritization. It is important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic, cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. Wisconsin has a vaccine hotline, call (844) 684-1064 (toll-free) if you have questions about vaccine locations and medical questions.

For county specific information, Burnett, Chisago and Polk County are all sharing updates on their websites. For general COVID-19 questions, 211 is also a resource.

There have been reports about vaccine scams, it is important to know that:

  • The COVID-19 vaccine is not available for purchase at this time.
  • Calls and texts from scammers indicated that they will send COVID-19 vaccines to you in exchange for your social security number, banking, or credit card information are illegitimate.
  • Report fraud by calling 1-800-U.S. HHS Tips (1-800-447-8477).

We have a brief video explaining the vaccine process.
