Universal vaccine eligibility starts Monday – SPREAD THE WORD

Beginning next week, all Michigan residents ages 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. As Michigan faces increasing cases, Gov. Whitmer has urged all providers to not turn someone away who wants the vaccine.

Because the quicker we can get to that 70 percent-plus (vaccinated) number, the better for every one of us,” said Gov. Whitmer.

Starting on Monday, April 5, all residents are encouraged to sign up for the vaccine:

  • Check the website of your local health department or hospital to find out their process or for registration forms (map of local health departments); or
  • Check for additional vaccination sites, such as local pharmacies; or
  • Residents who don’t have access to the internet or who need assistance navigating the vaccine scheduling process can call the COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 (press 1) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Please share this information with family, friends, neighbors and your social networks. More information about the safe, effective and free COVID-19 vaccine is available at Michigan.gov/COVIDVaccine.
