What can I do after I am vaccinated?
The CDC has issued new Guidelines for those who have received the complete series of their vaccines. Being fully vaccinated means 2 weeks after receiving the 2nd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or 2 weeks after receiving the one dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. This guideline is based on vaccine series completion and effectiveness.
For further information see CDC Guidance Page "When You've Been Fully Vaccinated"
Making Vaccines Accessible
Everyone 12 years of age or older is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Michigan. The Jackson County Health Department is working with local partners to distribute the vaccine through special clinics for homebound populations (see flyer below for details) and also clinics may be held in places like schools, colleges, pharmacies, local community event centers, and drive in clinics in order to allow everyone an opportunity to get a vaccine.
If you are in need of having someone come to your home to provide a vaccine to you and your caregivers please see the below flyer with information on where to call. A printable version of the flyer is available here.
