Macomb County Health Department Opens New COVID-19 Vaccination Site
New Location in Warren Represents Fourth County-Affiliated Site
The Macomb County Health Department today announced it is opening a new COVID-19 vaccination site at its Southwest Health Center in the Majestic Plaza, located at 27690 Van Dyke, Suite B in Warren and will be open to begin administering vaccinations beginning Monday, March 29th.
The new site represents the fourth county-affiliated COVID-19 vaccination site. Other county sites include the mass vaccination site at the Verkuilen Building in Clinton Township, the Richmond-Lenox EMS drive-through site, and the Sterling Heights Senior Center Site.
“Our new site in Warren broadens our ability to offer a variety of locations in Macomb County, and improve access for eligible residents and workers in the county,” said Andrew Cox, director/health officer of the Macomb County Health Department. “We will continue to take a community-driven approach and will focus our efforts on providing a safe, convenient experience for anyone who receives their vaccine at this site, or any of the sites we support.”
“The opening of this new facility in Warren represents a perfect opportunity to continue to accelerate the distribution of vaccines in Macomb County,” said County Executive Mark Hackel. “Together with our sites that are already in place, along with additional opportunities on the horizon, we’re building a broad, strategic network of vaccination locations.”
Appointments are required; the county-affiliated sites are not open to walk-ups. To make an appointment, eligible residents and workers can use the online scheduler which can be found at www.macombgov.org/covidvaccine. The online scheduler now offers eligible individuals the opportunity to choose the location where they wish to receive their vaccination. The vaccine scheduler is available 24/7 and has new appointments added on a daily basis. Eligible individuals are encouraged to check the system frequently, as changes and additions are made in real time.
