Dear Mayo Clinic Patients:
Many of you are hearing about COVID-19 vaccines and are wondering when you can get vaccinated.
Mayo Clinic continues to collaborate with other health care organizations, and state and federal authorities, to vaccinate patients in a fair and safe manner. But it will take some time to vaccinate everyone who wants to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
We also will continue to share with you information about COVID-19 vaccines on our COVID-19 information hub. If you are a Mayo Clinic patient, you can expect messages from your care team concerning your eligibility for COVID-19 vaccination appointments at Mayo Clinic.
While COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing COVID-19, you should continue to follow other prevention protocols already in place:
- Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth.
- Stay at least 6 feet apart from other people.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol.
Mayo Clinic believes that COVID-19 vaccines will be effective in preventing COVID-19. When you're eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.
Thank you for your continued trust in Mayo Clinic as we work together to meet your health care needs.
Amy W. Williams, M.D.
Executive Dean for Practice
