COVID-19 Vaccination

CDC has recommended everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 this fall and winter. More info here.

COVID-19 is always changing and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. This vaccine is a better match to protect against current variants.  

Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are now available at local providers. Check out to find a provider near you!  

At the Health Department, we have very limited doses of the updated COVID-19 vaccine. 

  • If you have private health insurance, please go to your doctor or pharmacy to get your updated vaccine. The cost for the vaccine has changed and we are now charging insurance. We accept Medicaid, Blue Care Network, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. We cannot bill other private insurance, but can accept out-of-pocket payments if we don't accept your insurance.
  • To schedule a vaccine at the Health Department, please call 734-544-6700. Note: we do NOT have all of the vaccines from all of the manufacturers for all ages - please ask about availability when scheduling.
  • As with other vaccines, we won’t deny services to people who are unable to pay. 

COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months old and up. They are safe, effective, and easy to get!

Health Department COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic (555 Towner in Ypsilanti)

Schedule an appointment by calling us at 734-544-6700.

We prefer people schedule appointments, but we can take walk-ins without appointments based on our availability during COVID-19 vaccine clinic hours (Tuesday-Friday from 9-11am and 1-4pm). Please note that you will likely have to wait to be seen if coming in without an appointment.

Who can get vaccinated at this clinic:

  • Clinic is open to everyone 6 months old and older.
    • A parent or guardian should be present when minors are getting vaccinated. If a parent/guardian cannot be present, an adult must accompany the minor. Written permission and a number where the parent/guardian can be reached is required. Identification is not required for minors.
  • You also not need to live or work in Washtenaw County to be vaccinated at our clinics. Everyone is welcome, including individuals who are not U.S. residents.

What to know when coming in for a COVID-19 vaccine:

  • COVID-19 vaccines should be covered by your insurance plan. We are not an in-network provider for many insurance companies, so you may need to seek vaccination through your physician or pharmacy. If you are uninsured, please tell us when you call to schedule. 
  • If possible, please bring your identification and vaccination card (if coming in for a booster). ID is not required, but is helpful for faster processing. 
  • Please remember to eat about an hour before your vaccine appointment and stay hydrated with water or non-caffeinated beverages!
  • Those getting their COVID-19 vaccine at this clinic can also request a flu vaccine at the same time.
