If you meet any one of these criteria, please call (605)-755-1350 to schedule an appointment, they are available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, or go to your MyChart account to self-schedule. 

After this group, the DOH vaccination criteria will expand to other groups within 1D as vaccine becomes available. The modification in the timeline comes amidst the federal government’s plan to release more vaccines to states and speed up vaccinations nationwide.

OUR MISSION AT MONUMENT HEALTH

Is to assist the South Dakota Department of Health (DOH) in getting the COVID-19 vaccine to all those in our assigned region who wish to receive it. This is a large effort with many variables. We ask for your patience and understanding as we complete this task together. The DOH is allocating the COVID-19 vaccine supplies statewide.
