Open Letter to Residents in Branch, Hillsdale, and St. Joseph Counties,
As of February 23, we are expanding eligibility for COVID-19 vaccination to include persons 60 to 64 years of age. When making an appointment someone 60 years of age and older will indicate that they are eligible in the senior citizen category.
Beginning March 1, 2021 additional eligible individuals will include agricultural and food processing workers who meet the definition below. Agricultural workers who do not work in an environment where they work in close proximitey to others do NOT qualify at this time.
The state’s food and agriculture sector is critical to feeding Michiganders, the continuity of the economy and spans a wide range of jobs. Within the sector, workers at the highest risk are those who must work in close proximity to many other people for extended periods of time. In Michigan and across the country, there have been significant outbreaks particularly in processing of meat, fruit and vegetable processing, and in harvesting of some crops. Therefore, our priority is on:
- Food processing workers, including especially meat processing and meatpacking facilities; processing of fruit and vegetables; dairy processing; animal feed manufacturing; food and animal feed ingredient manufacturing; beverage production; and the production of food packaging.
- Farmers and farm workers, including migrant and seasonal workers, involved in raising, cultivating, harvesting, packing, storing, and distributing agricultural commodities, and who are by the nature of their work in close proximity and contact with other people.
We are currently offering vaccination to the following groups:
- Health care workers and Long term care workers and residents (except for LTC's in the pharmacy program) who were not able to get the vaccine at previous vaccination events
- Seniors 60 years of age and older
- Childcare and PreK-12 educational staff
- Front-line essential workers (police, firefighters, corrections workers, inspectors)
- Congregate care facilities (homeless shelters, juvenile justice, and child care staff)
The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is working with local Commission on Agings and Area Agency on Aging IIIC and Region 2 to help ensure those over 60 know they are eligible for vaccination.
In the event that one does not have a friend or family member to assist in making an online appointment, a message can be left at 517-278-2538 if in Branch or St. Joseph counties and 517-592-1705 if in Hillsdale county to request assistance. Together, we can make it possible for all to have access to a vaccination.
DO NOT SCHEDULE A VACCINATION IF
- YOU HAVE HAD A DIFFERENT VACCINATION WITHIN TWO WEEKS
- YOU RECEIVED MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY THERAPY WITHIN THE LAST 90 DAYS
- YOU ARE UNDERGOING RADIATION THERAPY OR CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY AND HAVE NOT DISCUSSED WITH YOUR ONCOLOGIST
2/27/2021 - Appointments will be opening on Monday at 9:00 AM. - the links are active but you will not see appointments available for booking until Monday at 9:00 AM.
If you were not able to get an appointment on Monday morning, click on the links below throughout the week. We may have a small amount of appointments that come available during the week due to the following: someone cancels, someone has a duplicate appointment, we find someone got scheduled that is not currently eligible, or we get extra doses of vaccine.
To register when appointments are available:
1. Determine the group you are in, using the Preliminary vaccination timeline below.
Note: To book an appointment you will need, first name, last name, phone number, email address, date of birth, gender, street address, and zip code. You will also be asked to certify that you are in one of the priority groups we are currently vaccinating and that you either live or work in the county. Your appointment is NOT booked until you receive a confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation, your appointment was most likely not booked because someone else submitted the time slot before you. We can NOT change the name on an appointment, so make sure that you schedule under the correct name. We will be checking ID at the door and you will not be allowed to enter if you do not have an appointment.
