South Dakota Department of Health Launches COVID-19 Vaccine Group Identification Tool

The South Dakota Department of Health released a web-based tool to help South Dakotans best identify which priority vaccination group they fall under in South Dakota’s vaccination plan. Vaccine dosage and administration directly correlates to the vaccine prioritization group individuals fall under. The  portal will also connect users to hospital systems where they can register to be contacted when it’s their turn to get vaccinated, based on vaccine supply.

Additionally, two infographics were released depicting the vaccination process from registration to shot-in-arm for state residents and a myth & facts document regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. These tools are in addition to the already available dashboard, which is updated daily and available to the public.

The South Dakota Department of Health also announced that beginning Monday, February 8th, 2021, the age for vaccinating those in Group 1D will be lowered to those who are 75 and older. The Department of Health previously targeted individuals 80 and over and will continue to target additional age groups in 1D in five-year increments in the coming weeks as vaccine supply allows.
