Host or Request a Community COVID-19 Vaccination Event

Community vaccination events can bring vaccines to people who would otherwise have barriers getting vaccinated.  The Sioux Falls Health Department can work with individuals, families, local community organizations, or businesses to support vaccination events.

There are many roles that you can play to make a community vaccination event a success. 

  • Do outreach and community engagement to make sure people come to the vaccine event
  • Provide a building/room or a parking area for giving vaccinations
  • Help people register for the event
  • Provide volunteers to help welcome people to the vaccination event
