Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services is following the guidance set by the CDC and the South Dakota Department of Health to administer vaccines to those defined priority populations once sufficient doses are available. Please remember, the COVID-19 pandemic and COVID Vaccination Plan are evolving situations, and we are implementing changes immediately as needed.

COVID-19 vaccinations are an important tool to help stop the pandemic. They provide a safer way to immunity by avoiding severe risks and complications created by the COVID-19 virus. Combining the vaccine with other safety measures, including mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing, provides the best opportunity for stopping the pandemic.

The SD Dept of Health has put together a comprehensive plan to offer vaccines to all South Dakotans who want it. It is offered in phases to cover priority groups, such as healthcare workers and those at most risk from COVID-19 first. Once one phase or sub-phase is completed, vaccinations will be offered to the next eligible group.

CURRENTLY COVID VACCINES ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE 18 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER. (AGES 16 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE PFIZER COVID VACCINE ON SATURDAY, APRIL 17TH FROM 9:00AM-10:00AM): This is for all Turner County residents and those who have their PPC (primary care provider) at Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services.
