ALPENA, Mich. — District Health Department No. 4 vaccinated 435 people at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Alpena Mall on Thursday, March 18.
DHD4 offered walk-in vaccinations to anyone 60 and older who was struggling to make their appointment online. Individuals had to be residents of Alpena, Cheboygan, Montmorency, or Presque Isle counties.
On Monday, March 22, Michigan is expanding it’s vaccine eligibility to include anyone 16 and older with underlying conditions that may put them at risk for COVID-19. Then, on April 5, any Michigander 16 and older can receive a vaccine.
“To date over three-million doses have administered and the number is growing,” Governor Whitmer said this morning. “The vaccination progress is picking up speed. The vaccine train has left the station and is moving towards vaccinating 70-percent of Michiganders 16 and older. I’m thrilled that Ford Field was selected to be one of the first federal community vaccination sites in the country.”
