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.
For the most up to date information on the groups eligible for vaccine, check out the Michigan Coronavirus Vaccine Guidance Page. If you have questions about the COVID vaccine, check out this COVID Vaccine Myths and Facts Page developed by the CDC..
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.
Jackson County COVID Vaccine TIMELINE
The Jackson County Health Department wants to keep you informed of our progress regarding vaccine progress through the priority groups. A barometer has been developed to give you a pictorial view of where we are currently in the process. The number of vaccines our COVID Response and Vaccination Team can deliver is dependent on the amount of vaccine supply we have available. This timeline / barometer will be updated weekly (current post is as of 6/21/2021) or as vaccines are distributed through priority groups.
Information about the groups given priority to receive COVID-19 vaccine. Jackson's strategy is based on the Michigan COVD Vaccine Prioritization Guidance
