DULUTH — St. Luke's is now allowing the general public to schedule COVID-19 vaccines for anyone age 6 months and older.

Previously, the health care system was only scheduling St. Luke's patients due to high demand among children age 6 months to 5 years old.

Appointments can be made by calling 218-249-4200 in Duluth or 715-685-6600 in Ashland. For more information, visit slhduluth.com/COVIDVaccine .

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
