ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Get your COVID jab during three different vaccination clinics courtesy of Ann Arbor YMCA and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Community members can stop by the Y’s downtown location, at 400 W. Washington St., to receive the one-shot Johnson & Johnson jab or the two-shot Pfizer and Moderna shots.

Adult doses, children’s doses and booster shots will be available at the following clinics:

  • Monday, Jan. 24: 4:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 26: 9:00 a.m.-noon
  • Saturday, Jan. 29: 9:00 a.m.-noon

Registration for the events is recommended but not required, and walk-ins are welcome, Ann Arbor YMCA officials said. Registration can be done on the vaccine clinic website.

“Throughout the pandemic, the Ann Arbor Y has collaborated with governmental partners to help provide our community with a variety of coronavirus relief efforts, from distributing 25-pound boxes of free produce from the USDA Farmers to Families food box program, to handing out free COVID tests from Washtenaw County, and now hosting free vaccination clinics with MDHHS. Our Y is here to help serve those in need,” said Ann Arbor YMCA President and CEO Toni Kayumi.

The clinics are open to the public but anyone who is not a YMCA member will need to show a photo I.D. when entering the building.

Community members vaccinated at the clinic will receive a free day pass for the Y.

Masks covering the nose and month are required for everyone while in the building.
