Wayne County announces new vaccination clinics for seniors

Vaccination clinics for residents 65 and older


DETROIT – Wayne County announced it will open several vaccination clinics for residents 65 and older.

According to county executive Warren Evans, the vaccination clinics for residents of Canton Township, Highland Park, Hamtramck, Inkster, Melvindale, Pontiac Romulus and the city of Wayne will begin Feb. 23.

”I’m pleased Wayne County is now in a position to begin vaccinating seniors,” 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.”

Livonia was added to the list on Monday.

There are no walk-up appointments and seniors must make an appointment by calling the number for the site in their communities.

Note: Remember once again, these vaccines will only be for the residents in the specific communities.

“Every vaccinated resident gets us closer to ending the pandemic,” Evans said. “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.”
