There is “major snowfall” and possible difficult driving conditions expected soon, causing the 3,000 COVID vaccination appointments scheduled for Tuesday at the TCF Center to be moved to Saturday, according to a city of Detroit press release. The scheduled time on the new date remains the same as the original date. The second dose appointment also will not change and will remain on March 16th.
If any individual scheduled a $2 ride for Tuesday, the ride will now arrive on Saturday at the same time, the release added.
“We felt this was the right approach to deal with the fact that getting to TCF tomorrow could be very difficult for a lot of people,” said Mayor Mike Duggan in the press release. “Rather than have to reschedule a lot of people who might miss their appointment weeks down the road, it just made sense to shift everyone at once to a day weather should not be an issue.”
All individuals with appointments will be contacted by scheduling staff to confirm details for their new Saturday appointment, per the release. Duggan added that if anyone has a conflict with the new date, they can call 313-230-0505 to find a new date that works for them and their schedule.
