Wayne County Opens up Six COVID Vaccine Clinics For Older Residents

Wayne County residents who are 65 years old and older can receive COVID-19 vaccinations now at six vaccine clinics that recently opened up in eight communities starting today, according to a Wayne County press release.

Wayne County Executive Evans announced the free senior vaccination sites recently as part of Wayne County’s initiative to continue efforts to make more vaccines available and accessible to county senior residents.

“I’m pleased Wayne County is now in a position to begin vaccinating seniors,” Evans said in the press release. “I know everyone is eager to safely get back to normal. Our team is working hard to ensure all of our residents can get their COVID shot as quickly as the vaccine is available. Every vaccinated resident gets us closer to ending the pandemic.”

Evans continued: “I also want to thank the state of Michigan for working with Wayne County to ensure we have more doses to vaccinate our seniors more quickly. The vaccine distribution process is limited by the available vaccine – of which no one is getting enough – but Wayne County is putting shots in arms as fast as we get them. By taking vaccines to where seniors are, Wayne County is making it even easier for people who want the vaccine to get a shot.”

Wayne County Public Health has administered 36,601 vaccines and is scheduled to administer another 13,000 doses in the coming week. In all, Wayne County Public Health and local health systems have provided more than 181,596 doses to Wayne County residents since the vaccine became available in December.

Seniors in the communities below should contact the nearest site to schedule their appointment. There are no walk-up appointments, and seniors must make an appointment by calling the number for the site in their communities. More senior vaccination sites will be announced as more vaccine becomes available. Visit www.waynecounty.com/covid19 for up-to-date vaccine information.
