Macomb County Health Department has created a web page with all of the most recent information regarding the COVID-19 Vaccine.   The County estimates that there is 275,000 people now eligible in Macomb County for the vaccine.  The issue is that the County is only receiving the Pfizer vaccine at this point. They have been receiving one tray (975 doses) from the State per week.  Sometimes they receive a second tray of 975 for those needing the second shot.  As you can imagine, with 975 doses per week and over 275,000 needing the vaccine, this will take a long time unless additional doses are made available to Macomb County.  The County has the ability to vaccinate 50,000 per week if they had the vaccine.  The shortages have led to the scheduling number being shut down at this time due to no vaccines being currently available. 

The Macomb County Health Department has been designated by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to play a vital role in helping ensure that as COVID-19 vaccines become available, they are distributed based on federal, state and local plans and guidelines.   

Currently, the Macomb County Health Department is Providing COVID-19 Vaccinations to:

  • Paramedics and EMS workers
  • Home health and hospice workers
  • Other health care workers with direct or indirect contact with patients
  • Resident over the age of 65
  • School employees
  • Law enforcement and correctional officers
  • Workers in child care institutions, adult/child protective services and homeless shelters
  • All municipal employees

Only individuals in these designated groups are currently eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine at this time.

To make an appointment, call 586-463-8777, Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Vaccination appointments are available Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturdays between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Vaccines are being administered at:
