COVID-19 Vaccination

If you are viewing this page on a mobile device, it is best viewed in horizontal or landscape mode. 

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

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. 

Additional doses for moderately to severely immunocompromised people: We are offering additional (3rd) doses to those eligible 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.

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

People who are not immunocompromised do not need an additional vaccine dose right now. No other "booster" doses are authorized or recommended at this time. 

Learn more about booster and additional doses here.

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:
