March 29, 2021: The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced expanded vaccine eligibility starting March 8. Individuals aged 50 and up with medical conditions and disabilities, as well as caregiver family members and guardians aged 16 and older of children who have special health care needs, were eligible for vaccination. On March 22, eligibility expanded to everyone aged 50 and over. On Monday, April 5, eligibility expanded to all people aged 16 and up.
Newly eligible individuals can complete the LCHD COVID-19 Vaccination Interest Form, and will likely have to wait several weeks or more (depending on supplies) before an appointment is available. Although eligibility is expanding, the Health Department will continue to prioritize individuals aged 65 and older who already signed up to receive the vaccine. While vaccine supply is increasing, it does not meet the demand locally. Individuals who completed the COVID-19 Vaccination Interest Form will be sorted by priority group and randomly selected to schedule appointments as they become available.
If you are interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine, please complete the above COVID-19 Vaccination Interest Form. You will be contacted to schedule an appointment when we are able to offer you a vaccination. If you cannot complete the form online, please call 211 and ask for assistance signing up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Please reserve phone lines for those who cannot access online resources.
