Vaccine Open to Everyone Age 12 and Older
COVID-19 vaccines are our most promising opportunity to move from the grip of a pandemic back toward normal life. Trinity Health encourages everyone to get the vaccine and is now taking calls from anyone age 12 and up who would like to get vaccinated.
We offer two vaccines:
- Pfizer: Two doses three weeks apart and approved for age 12 and older
- Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine: One dose and approved for age 18 and older.
If you have a vaccine preference, just let us know. We’ll schedule your appointment date based on our current and expected supply of each vaccine, which can change weekly.
Simply call 857-2515 in Minot, or your local Trinity Health clinic outside of Minot, to schedule an appointment.
Tell your family and friends, too! If you know anyone else who wants the vaccine, invite them to call us.
Trinity Health receives our vaccine shipments directly from the North Dakota Department of Health. When we receive a vaccine shipment, Trinity Health acts quickly to dispense every dose. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as possible, as soon as possible, to achieve the best benefit for our community.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms and need to be tested, please call First District Health Unit at 852-1376 for an appointment.
If you need proof of a COVID-19 test but have no symptoms, Trinity Health offers rapid antigen testing at a cost of $75. Test results are ready in 15 minutes. Call 857-7817 for an appointment.
For additional information on COVID-19 testing, please consult the coronavirus page of FDHU’s website, fdhu.org.
MASK / VISITOR Guidelines
Effective February 10, 2021, visitors are permitted in Trinity Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital, provided they do not have respiratory symptoms and are not COVID-positive.
Anyone entering Trinity Hospital will be screened at entryways prior to gaining access to the building. Visiting hours at Trinity Hospital remain 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Trinity Health continues to require that all visitors wear a mask and practice social distancing at all times in our facilities. To maintain safety at the patient bedside, a limit of two visitors at a time will be permitted in a patient’s room.
For Labor and Delivery: Two adult support persons are permitted at any one time; the significant other is considered to be one of those two persons.
For a Mom/Baby stay: Two adult support persons are permitted at any one time; the significant other is considered to be one of those two persons. The siblings group - meaning the brothers and sisters of the new baby - are welcome to visit once during the stay to meet their sibling.
No one will be allowed to visit patients who have tested positive for COVID-19, with the following exceptions:
- COVID-positive pediatric patients – limit to one parent or legal guardian
- COVID-positive maternity patients with newborn – limit one support person
- COVID-positive end-of-life – pre-approval required for all visits
Hospital cafeterias, lobbies, and waiting rooms are open, with social distancing required.
Visitor restrictions are determined using a scoring-based, formal risk assessment that monitors trends in hospital census and case status in the community and region.
Visitation at all outpatient and clinic facilities is currently set at moderate restrictions.
One asymptomatic adult visitor will be allowed to accompany a patient to an appointment. No one under age 18 will be permitted. Anyone with respiratory symptoms or who is COVID-positive will be barred from visiting.

MASK/FACE COVERING MANDATORY
- Masks must be worn in every Trinity Health facility throughout your visit. This includes while visiting in a patient’s room.
- Due to a limited supply of masks to hand out, anyone entering a Trinity Health facility Is REQUIRED TO BRING AND WEAR THEIR OWN FACE COVERING.
- Visitors seen without a mask will be asked to wear one.
- Visitors MAY BE DENIED ACCESS if they refuse to comply with the mask policy.
- If masks are not worn appropriately, Trinity Health reserves the right to ask a visitor to leave.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing a mask or cloth face covering as a safeguard against the spread of COVID-19, regardless of symptoms.
Trinity Health is extremely grateful for the dozens of individuals who have sewn cloth masks and crafted 3D face masks to shore up our supplies. We thank everyone for doing their part to protect each other and the community.
Thank you for choosing Trinity Health and for helping to keep our facilities safe for all patients, visitors, and staff.
