COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Any Michigan resident who is currently eligible to receive the vaccine under the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) vaccine prioritization guidance will be able to register for an appointment. The following criteria timeline will be considered by vaccine providers (for individual’s risk of exposure due to employment or vulnerability to severe disease) as vaccine supplies are made available:
Currently, all areas of the state may implement the vaccination of people who are aged 50 and up with medical conditions and/or disabilities, as well as caregiver family members and guardians age 16 and older of children who have special health care needs.
By Monday, March 22, 2021, all areas of the state may implement the vaccination of people who are aged 50 and up, as well as the vaccination of people aged 16 and up, who have disabilities and/or medical conditions, as well as their caregiver family members and guardians.
By Monday, April 5, 2021, all areas of the state may implement the vaccination of all people aged 16 and up who were not previously eligible.
Ford Field Vaccination Clinic
Michigan residents can now begin registering for the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Ford Field in Detroit. The community vaccination site is set to officially open on March 24.
The Ford Field site will operate from 8am to 8:30pm, seven days a week, for eight weeks under the federal government's vaccination pilot program. The vaccine will be offered at no cost, and insurance is not required, nor will it be requested at the vaccination center. Residents who don’t have access to the internet or need assistance navigating through the registration process can use the MDHHS COVID-19 Hotline (888-535-6136 and press 1) to register. Call Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm, and Saturday and Sunday 8am to 1pm. It is expected that the call center will have long wait times, so calling is recommended only if you cannot register online or by text.
After the registration process is completed, people who have registered will receive an invitation either by voice or text when it’s their turn to schedule an appointment. Vaccine appointments will be scheduled a few days in advance
Sign-up is available through these three options:
- Online at meijer.com/register/CL2021
- Text EndCOVID to 75049
- Call the MDHHS COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 (press 1)
