Wayne County announced several local COVID-19 vaccination clinics for seniors opening next week across the county.
The free clinics are part of Wayne County’s continuing efforts to make more vaccines available and accessible to county senior residents.
“I’m pleased Wayne County is now in a position to begin vaccinating seniors,” Executive Warren Evans said. “I know everyone is eager to safely get back to normal. Our team is working hard to ensure all of our residents can get their COVID shot as quickly as the vaccine is available. Every vaccinated resident gets us closer to ending the pandemic.”
Executive Evans continued: “I also want to thank the state of Michigan for working with Wayne County to ensure we have more doses to vaccinate our seniors more quickly. The vaccine distribution process is limited by the available vaccine – of which no one is getting enough – but Wayne County is putting shots in arms as fast as we get them. By taking vaccines to where seniors are, Wayne County is making it even easier for people who want the vaccine to get a shot.”
Wayne County Public Health has administered 36,601 vaccines and is scheduled to administer another 13,000 doses in the coming week. In all, Wayne County Public Health and local health systems have provided more than 181,596 doses to Wayne County residents since the vaccine became available in December.
Seniors in the communities below should contact the nearest site to schedule their appointment. There are no walk-up appointments, and seniors must make an appointment by calling the number for the site in their communities. More senior vaccination sites will be announced as more vaccine becomes available. Visit http://www.waynecounty.com/covid19 for up-to-date vaccine information.
