COVID-19 Vaccine Central
The Macomb County Health Department has been designated by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to play a vital role in helping ensure that as COVID-19 vaccines become available, they are distributed based on federal, state and local plans and guidelines. This page is intended to provide the latest information on those vaccinations and how the vaccinations are being distributed.
It will also include details on how and when the vaccine will be available to the general public. Currently, the vaccine is being distributed to our heroes on the front line. This continues to be a fluid process, but the MDHHS hopes to have vaccines for the general public in 2021, possibly by late spring. Please be patient and stay tuned to this page for updates. We also recommend visiting the Frequently Asked Questions section of the MDHHS COVID-19 website and the state’s COVID-19 vaccine dashboard for additional resources.
And please remember, even with the vaccine, we need to continue to follow safety guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19. According to the CDC, there is not enough information currently available to say if or when they will stop recommending mask wearing and social distancing. Experts need to understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide before making that decision. Other factors, including how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision.
Currently, the Macomb County Health Department is Providing COVID-19 Vaccinations to:
- Paramedics and EMS workers
- Home health and hospice workers
- Other health care workers with direct or indirect contact with patients
- Resident over the age of 65
- School employees
- Law enforcement and correctional officers
- Workers in child care institutions, adult/child protective services and homeless shelters
- All municipal employees
Only individuals in these designated groups are currently eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine at this time.
