COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccines are free, safe, effective, and easy to get!

Expanded, drive-through clinics are available during October. Full announcement in English or Spanish. Regular, walk-in clinics continue at the Health Department Tuesday through Friday.

Pfizer boosters: The CDC has recommended Pfizer booster doses for specific people. Only Pfizer vaccine is currently available as a booster. Six months must have passed since the individual's last Pfizer dose to be eligible for a booster.

Additional doses for immunocompromised people (mRNA vaccines - Pfizer and Moderna): Additional (3rd) doses for those eligible are available at our ongoing vaccine clinic at the Health Department (555 Towner in Ypsilanti). Walk-in during the times listed below. We strongly encourage patients to talk with their primary care doctor or treatment team who cares for their immunosuppressive condition to determine the degree of immune compromise and, importantly, determine appropriate timing of an additional vaccine dose. Additional doses of Pfizer or Moderna can be given at least 28 days after a 2nd dose.

A parent or guardian must be present when minors are getting vaccinated. Identification is helpful for the parent or guardian, but NOT required. Identification is not required for adolescents. Adolescents must be 12 years of age or older by the vaccination date.

COVID vaccination is now widely available and other providers are also offering additional doses. Staffing and doses at pop-up clinics may be limited. First come, first served, if necessary.

COVID-19 Prevention Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 means you can start doing some of the things you stopped doing because of the pandemic. You're considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your last dose in a vaccine series (for Pfizer or Moderna, that's 2 weeks after your second dose; for Johnson & Johnson, that's 2 weeks after your one dose).

See these pages from the CDC on what is safe to do once you're fully vaccinated:
