Where can you get vaccinated?

You can get vaccinated at a number of places, and we recommend you explore all of these options to increase your chance of getting an appointment:

MidMichigan Medical Center- Gratiot - visit their website
Sparrow - visit their website
McLaren Health Care - visit their website

Mid-Michigan District Health Department (branch offices located in Ithaca, St. Johns and Stanton)
Mid-Michigan District Health Department is administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to those in priority group 1A (first responders, health care, AFC, assisted living, skilled nursing, and home health care workers) and those in priority group 1B (those 65 years of age and older, first responders not vaccinated in 1A, corrections and jail staff, child care providers, K-12 school staff, homeless shelter staff, drug rehabilitation center staff, transient living staff, and CPS workers).

  • We know so many of you are eager to get your COVID-19 vaccination and many of you are growing frustrated. The issue is that the demand for the vaccine far exceeds vaccine supply. Everyone who is eligible to receive the vaccine will be vaccinated, just not as quickly as we’d all like. This is a difficult time for us all, but we will get through this! We are administering around 600 first doses every week, and also holding second dose clinics. We wish we could vaccinate more people on a weekly basis, but can't until the amount of vaccine we receive is increased. 
  • When we have appointments available, those on our waiting list will be notified. 

Sign up to be placed on our COVID-19 vaccination waiting list

  • If you would like to be placed on our COVID-19 vaccination waiting list, enter your email address in the box below. When we have appointments available, you will be notified via email with instructions on how to schedule an appointment. We will also send out weekly updates.
  • Notice to those who previously created a SignUpGenius account on our website: Before we transitioned to our new COVID-19 appointment scheduling system, we were using a program called SignUpGenius. We replaced that system as soon as we could because it was not user-friendly and was very confusing. Creating a SignUpGenius account to schedule an appointment was not necessary, but many did not realize this and created one anyway. We later learned that some people thought that creating a SignUpGenius account put them on our waiting list, but that was not the case. Therefore, we are recommending anyone who was under the impression that creating a SignUpGenius account put them on our waiting list to enter their email address in the box below to ensure that they are in fact on our waiting list.
