All patients 16 years of age and older are invited to call 507.292.7300 to schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  Appointments will typically be available Wednesday through Friday (depending on the amount of vaccine we receive) and will take place at the Rochester Northwest Clinic.

We also will continue to reach out to patients in the following ways.

  • A message to your OMC MyChart patient portal account.
    • If you have email notifications for messages turned on, the email will read “a new COVID-19 vaccine scheduling ticket available in OMC MyChart.”
    • If you have questions about OMC MyChart, you can call 507.287.2780 (8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday).
  • By phone or text message for individuals who do not have an OMC MyChart account.

Olmsted Medical Center follows COVID-19 vaccination recommendations and guidelines provided by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the State of Minnesota. Although vaccine is allotted each week by the State of Minnesota, it is unknown from week to week how much vaccine we will receive. Please be aware that it will take time and patience to vaccinate all patients who want to be vaccinated. This is because the demand for the vaccine is much greater than the supply.

OMC Information

Information verified on March 9, 2021.

Olmsted Medical Center is actively monitoring the latest CDC and MDH guidelines for vaccine distribution. We are committed to providing the COVID-19 vaccination to our patients. It is important to note that the State of Minnesota and Minnesota Department of Health manage vaccine allotment across the state.

Eligible patients will be contacted by OMC when vaccine becomes available for them. OMC does not know when we will get vaccine or the amount of the vaccine that will be available to us. We are ready for any quantity of vaccine we receive.  As more information becomes available, we will provide updates.

To help you prepare for when the vaccine becomes available, we would like to invite you to sign up for OMC MyChart, our patient portal. Using OMC MyChart offers a quick and easy way to receive information about your eligibility to get the COVID-19 vaccine. You will even be able to schedule your vaccination appointment using OMC MyChart, when the time comes.
