Detroit -Starting Monday, April 5th, all Michigan residents 16 years and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
State guidelines will remove the April 5th restriction on COVID-19 vaccine appointments, allowing all adults to obtain one of the three vaccines authorized by the FDA.
Starting this week, Michigan’s vaccine shipments will also increase to help fight the current surge in COVID-1
The options for finding vaccines across the state last week are expanding and will continue as supplies increase. Here are some of the best options for finding a date:
CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Rite Aid are rapidly expanding appointments in the Detroit Metropolitan and Michigan State. The best time to find an appointment is early in the morning. (Professional tip: search by zip code)
Also, please contact your local pharmacy. Many have vaccine supplies or waiting lists.
The local health department has opened local clinics for residents, some in the local community, and some at the county level. You can find a list of each health department here.
A walk-in clinic is one of the best ways to obtain a vaccine. This week, at Sterling Heights on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, ACCESS will host a Pfizer walk-in clinic open to all people aged 16 and above. More information here.
