Please Note: COVID19 Vaccine Shipment Reduced-Clinics Cancelled: DHD4 was notified that this week’s COVID19 vaccine shipment has been reduced and is not enough to fulfill our currently scheduled clinics. The following COVID 19 vaccination clinics and appointments are cancelled:
- January 27 in Atlanta, Montmorency County
- January 28 in Alpena, Alpena County
- January 29 in Millersburg, Presque Isle County
Anyone scheduled in the cancelled clinics will not lose their spot. A DHD4 representative will contact you and reschedule into the next available appointment in your county when more vaccine supplies are received. Please do not call and try to reschedule, a health department representative will call you.
DHD4 understands the frustration of our residents wanting COVID19 vaccinations and continues to work hard in getting vaccine supplies to the area.
DHD4 staff have been diligently calling those in the pre-registration queue as they were received. They have been working to schedule appointments well into the evenings and will also be working this weekend to continue to schedule appointments.
With 1,000s of requests for COVID 19 vaccination, DHD4 will continue to add appointment slots and clinics as vaccine supplies are confirmed.
The new 1B expansion means that in Northeast Michigan, this represents over 25,000 eligible individuals. Vaccine availability still depends on both vaccine supply and staffing capacity. Please be patient. We cannot vaccinate everyone eligible immediately.
Please note: We are not taking or responding to voicemails or emails requesting COVID-19 Vaccine.
*Please note: As the public health response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, so does the reporting of data. With COVID-19 now being considered a reportable communicable disease in the State of MI, DHD4 will only be notified when a person tests positive for COVID-19. Therefore, we will no longer be reporting total tests, total negative tests or pending tests on the data dashboard.
*The dashboard will be updated by 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday, with COVID-19 figures included as of 2:00 p.m.
*Please note: As the number of cases grow, MDHHS is only able to update their website once per day. We may report a local case before the state is able to include it in their counts. Given that it is our mission to ensure the health of our communities, we feel that it is important to share these results quickly whenever possible.
*DHD4 is working diligently with community partners to expand testing capacity, to track COVID-19 in our region, and to quickly share information as we learn more.
