How do I receive a vaccine from the Health Department?

COVID-19 vaccines are being offered at the health department on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday during the hours of 8:00-11:30 am and 1:00-4:00 pm.  

When planning to be vaccinated please remember the following vaccine items:

  • Pfizer vaccine is a two shot series, 21 days apart and is allowed for 12 years and older
  • Moderna vaccine is a two shot series, 28 days apart and is allowed for 18 years and older
  • Johnson and Johnson is a one shot series approved for 18 years and older.  

For a list of sites where vaccine is located and currently available, check out the CDC's Vaccine finder page.

See the CDC for the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines


Who is eligible for a 3rd vaccine dose?

The CDC has authorized that those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised are eligible to receive a 3rd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.  There is not enough data at this time to determine whether immunocompromised people who received the Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine also have an improved antibody response following an additional dose of the same vaccine therefore a 3rd dose of J&J has not been authorized at this time. See the details about eligibility in this flyer.


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.
