During the COVID-19 pandemic, UCare is here to help you understand what you need to do to stay safe and get the care you need.
This page is updated as new information is available.
UCare wants to make sure you have the information you need about COVID-19 vaccines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that the available COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Getting the vaccine is the best way to get back to doing what you love to do, while keeping you, your family and your friends safe. Please check with your doctor or pharmacist to see if the COVID-19 vaccine is right for you. UCare covers the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost to you.
COVID-19 vaccines are not directly available through UCare. Please visit the Minnesota Department of Health website, contact your doctor's office or visit your clinic or pharmacy's website for information on how to get the vaccine.

You may experience minor side effects such as arm soreness, muscle aches, headache or chills. These side effects are a sign that your body is responding correctly to the vaccine and building immunity to COVID-19.
If you experience severe side effects, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of your face and throat, fast heartbeat, rash all over your body, dizziness or weakness, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room right away.
