Michigan has started listing local health departments accepting appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations.

On January 11, Michigan moved into the next phase of vaccinations, which includes teachers, first responders, childcare providers and residents 65 years of age and older.

Eligible essential workers, teachers and childcare workers will be notified by their employers about vaccine clinic dates and locations, Gov. Whitmer said. Eligible residents should not go to any of the clinics without an appointment.

All counties can begin vaccinating residents over the age of 65. The state has started listing local health departments who are ready to take appointments.

ALL MICHIGANDERS

Please do not call local health departments for information. They are moving as quickly as possible to make vaccine available. They will not have more information than is on this website.

There is limited vaccine in Michigan, so appointments may not yet be available. Please do not go to a clinic for vaccination without an appointment. You can always check this website for the latest information.

MDHHS will move to vaccinate other categories of Michiganders as more vaccine becomes available.
