As of Monday, January 11, Michiganders 65 and up can begin receiving the Covid-19 vaccine. There are three types of organizations where older adults in the Area Agency on Aging 1-B’s six-county Michigan region will be able to get the vaccine:
FEMA has now also opened a regional mass-vaccination clinic at Ford Field. (See below for more information.)
Most health departments, health systems and pharmacies are asking that you register online to reserve your spot for the vaccine. We have listed Covid-19 vaccine information below for county health departments in each of the six counties in the AAA 1-B service area. This includes links to online registration forms from county health departments, where available. We have also created a document that brings together information from county health departments, health systems and pharmacies. We will be updating it often. Please download our COVID-19 Vaccine Information All AAA 1-B Counties (Updated April 21, 2021) and share with anyone who you feel may benefit. You can also check the State of Michigan Coronavirus Website for current information: http://bit.ly/MIVaccineInfo for up-to-date information on the vaccine and vaccine access.
Resources to help older adults who don’t have internet access
We know that some older adults may have difficulty registering online. Unfortunately, we do not have a way to directly help people make appointments. Here are three options for people without internet access:
Meijer, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Kroger, CVS,Walmart, Sam’s Club and Costco pharmacies are now also vaccine distribution points. For Meijer, use this link: https://clinic.meijer.com/, or text COVID to 75049, to be notified when the vaccine will be available in your area. For Rite Aid, use the Rite Aid Scheduling Tool to register and find an appointment. Walgreens has limited availability in select areas. The Walgreens Covid-19 webpage will help you find out if it’s available near you. Sign up for a Walmart appointment using this online form. Kroger Covid vaccine scheduling is also being done online. Go to the CVS website for their most current vaccination information.
Ford Field FEMA Vaccination Clinic
Vaccination clinics will run from 8 am – 8:30 pm for 8 weeks beginning March 24. Register online at: https://clinic.meijer.com/register/CL2021. If you are unable to register online, text End Covid to 75049 or call (888) 535-6136. Meijer will text or call (based on preference), to schedule an appointment.
Transportation and Vaccines for Homebound Seniors
We have created a list of In-Home COVID-19 Vaccination Programs throughout our six counties.
