COVID-19 Vaccination Information

COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic and keep you, your family and community safe and healthy. Extensive testing has shown that the vaccines available today are safe and effective, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Getting the vaccine and continuing to follow practices like wearing a mask, washing your hands and practicing social distancing offer the best protection from COVID-19.

When can I get my COVID-19 vaccine?


How do I access the vaccine?

Health Care Systems: The South Dakota Department of Health has recruited health care systems across the state to provide vaccination services. The health care systems are vaccinating individuals in the priority groups as vaccine is available.

Pharmacy: The federal government has partnered with a number of national pharmacy chains and independent pharmacy networks to help administer COVID-19 vaccine in communities across the United States. This program is helping to expand access to vaccines. Pharmacy partners will vaccinate individuals who are currently eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine in their state.

Because the COVID-19 vaccine supply is limited, the South Dakota Department of Health has developed priority groups to receive the vaccine based on age and risk factors.

  • As the vaccine supply increases, additional groups will be able to get vaccinated.
  • We understand it can be difficult to be patient during this process. We encourage you to continue to educate yourself about the COVID-19 vaccine so that when you have the opportunity to be vaccinated, you are ready.
