Twin Valley, MN — Supply is currently outweighing demand for the COVID-19 vaccine in Norman County, according to local public health officials. Norman-Mahnomen Public Health has been offering the Moderna vaccine, but this week is turning their emphasis to assisting a local pharmacy who will be offering the highly anticipated Johnson and Johnson “one and done” vaccine this Friday. Sarah Kjono with Norman-Mahnomen Public Health says its likely people have been holding off on the two-dose Moderna vaccine for the one-dose Johnson and Johnson. She adds while its technically less effective than Moderna and Pfizer, it has more appeal to those with busy schedules.

Twin Valley Pharmacy will be offering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine this Friday, April 9th to anyone over the age of 18. You can call them at 218-584-5147 to schedule an appointment.

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, approximately 50% of 16 and older population in Norman County have at least begun the vaccination process, while 39% have completed the vaccination process.
