Save Your Spot

In order to get the vaccine, you must register! To be notified when you are eligible to make an appointment for a vaccine, visit and click on one provider and complete a COVID-19 vaccination registration. As doses become available, eligible individuals will be contacted by that provider to make an appointment.

Latest Michigan Epidemic Order

On March 2, MDHHS Director Elizabeth Hertel announced a new epidemic order easing COVID-19 restrictions in the state. Restaurants will be allowed to have 50% indoor capacity with an extended curfew of 11 p.m. The Order also increases the limits for private indoor gatherings to 15 people from different households and outdoor gatherings to 300. Read the full Epidemic Order here.

Community Toolkit
