Vaccines at MRHS

Madison Regional Health System has worked with the South Dakota Department of Health for several months in preparation of the vaccine. Please remember, the COVID-19 pandemic and COVID Vaccination Plan are evolving situations. MRHS is staying up-to-date on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and South Dakota Department of Health guidelines and implementing changes immediately as needed.

COVID-19 vaccinations are an important tool to help stop the pandemic. They provide a safer way to immunity by avoiding severe risks and complications created by the COVID-19 virus. Combining the vaccine with other safety measures, including mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing, provides the best opportunity for stopping the pandemic.

Vaccination Plan

The South Dakota Department of Health has put together a comprehensive plan to offer vaccines to all South Dakotans who want it. It is offered in phases to cover priority groups, such as healthcare workers and those most at risk from COVID-19, first. Once one phase or sub-phase is completed, vaccinations will be offered to the next eligible group.

When Can I Be Vaccinated?

Currently, the South Dakota Department of Health anticipates the vaccine will be available for the general public (Phase 2) in April or May 2021. Featured below are helpful links with up-to-date information from the SD Department of Health.
