WARREN, Mich. – Macomb County is ramping up its efforts to get more people vaccinated for COVID-19.

A new clinic will open Monday at the Southwest Health Center in the Majestic Plaza, located on Van Dyke Avenue, just north of I-696 in Warren.

It is the fourth county-affiliated COVID vaccination site in Macomb County.

Other county sites include the mass vaccination site at the Verkuilen Building in Clinton Township, the Richmond-Lenox EMS drive-through site and the Sterling Heights Senior Center site.

County officials said new Majestic Plaza location was chosen to be as accessible as possible.

“That way, it just makes it more convenient. The drive is less, it’s right around the corner, it’s it’s a recognized building that’s been in the community, serving the community,” said Macomb County Health Department director Andrew Cox. “I think that’s it only made sense to us to get something in the south side.”

How to register for appointment

The clinic will not be open to walk-ups and appointments must be made.

You can get an appointment on the Macomb County website here.

That site will lead you to the actual vaccine appointment site: macombcovidvaccine.itfrontdesk.com/apptonline. This is where you can select “New Appointment.” You will then be prompted to select a location before going through the registration form.

NOTE: On Monday morning (March 29), the site indicated appointments were unavailable at all four Macomb County vaccine locations. The county posted this note:

“New appointments for this location are not available at this time. Please check back frequently as new appointments for the COVID-19 Vaccine are added as they become available. You can also visit www.macombgov.org/vaccinecentral for information about other nearby providers.”
