Michigan Medicine is opening additional first-dose COVID-19 vaccine appointments on Friday
ANN ARBOR – Michigan Medicine announced in an email to patients Friday morning that new vaccine appointments would be opening for patients 65 and over after 3 p.m.
Patients who have received an invitation to make an appointment but have not been able to reserve a time slot are asked to log into their patient portal this afternoon or call the phone number provided on their mail-in invitation to reserve a time.
Appointments can fill up quickly. If they fill up before you can reserve a time slot, or if you cannot take advantage of the available time slots, Michigan Medicine urges patients to keep checking their website to see when additional appointments are available for the first dose.
The health system expects an additional round of invitations for individuals to make an appointment for the first dose on Friday.
On Monday, eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines in Michigan will be expanded to include those ages 50 and older with pre-existing medical conditions or disabilities, and guardians and caregivers of children with special health needs.
On March 22nd, all residents aged 50 and over can be vaccinated.
Michigan Medicine recently received 200 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson / Janssen. The health system is currently reviewing “all available safety and efficacy data to make recommendations” on how to deliver the vaccine efficiently, safely and fairly.
