Chamber: Pop-up vaccination clinic with single-dose vaccine coming to Lutsen

Dear Chamber Members: This may be of interest to others, but we think it will be especially important to business owners and managers in Lutsen, Tofte, Schroeder and points in between:

From 1-5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 14, Cook County Public Health and Sawtooth Mountain Clinic will hold a pop-up vaccination event at Lutsen Town Hall, at the intersection of Highway 61 and Caribou Trail. 

This is an important opportunity that we hope many members will grasp. One reason is that the event will use the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine that many prefer because of its convenience -- no need to return for a second dose in a month's time.

The J&J vaccine is rated highly effective at preventing serious disease, hospitalizations and death from COVID-19.

To sign up for a dose of the J&J vaccine at the Lutsen event, go to the county's COVID hub, http://cookcountycovid19.org/  on Monday, April 12, after 8 a.m. The registration for this event will remain open for two days. You do not need to live or work on the West End to sign up for this event. Everyone 18 years of age and older is eligible.

Employers have strong reasons for encouraging  employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Most powerful is that a fully vaccinated person is not required to quarantine for 14 days after coming in close contact with a virus-infected person. By getting vaccinated, workers protect themselves from a serious disease and from the possibility of spending two weeks off work without pay. Employers with a vaccinated staff are spared the potentially crippling effect of losing their staff to quarantine and being forced to shutter their businesses. And the vaccination event in Lutsen offers the added advantage of the single-dose J&J vaccine. One and done is a powerful incentive.
