  4. IF you receive an appointment verification email, you have successfully scheduled an appointment.
  5. IF you DO NOT receive a confirmation email that states the date, time and location of your appointment, you DO NOT have a confirmed appointment. Many people are trying to schedule at the same time.

I made a mistake when filling out my vaccine registration form. How can I correct this? You can edit your information at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of your confirmation email that says "edit this submission."  There is no need to contact the health department.

How long will it take to get an email to schedule? The time between completing the survey and when you get the link will vary depending on which priority group you fall in and when vaccine is available to schedule more appointments.

In the initial phase of vaccination, both the Lenawee County Health Department and ProMedica Hickman Hospital will be distributing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine will initially be available in limited quantities. The initial doses of vaccine will be used to vaccinate frontline healthcare workers, EMS and those working at vaccination clinics.

Distribution 

Lenawee County Health Department is following Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for prioritization of distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to individuals. These recommendations are based on input from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a federal advisory committee made up of medical and public health experts who develop recommendations on the use of vaccines in the United States. 

The different vaccination phases are as follows:

Phase 1A - Currently Being Distributed to All Groups

  • Priority One
    • Emergency medical service providers, including medical first responders
    • Frontline healthcare workers not affiliated with ProMedica or a larger organization, this includes medical examiners, medical examiner investigators, embalmers, and first call teams.
    • ProMedica Hickman personnel: general medical floor, emergency department, intensive care units
  • Priority Two
    • Long Term Care staff, including support staff making visits to long term care homes
    • Medical Home Health Care workers care for high risk clients with large patient loads
    • Adult foster care centers staff, including support staff making visits to AFC homes
    • Vulnerable residents in long-term care facilities
  • Priority Three, Group A 
    • Dental staff with direct patient contact such as dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants
    • Dialysis center staff with direct patient contact
    • Other ProMedica Hickman personnel
  • Priority Three, Group B 
    • Non-medical Home Health Care workers with direct patient contact
    • Health care providers with direct patient contact such as doctors, nurses and medical assistants
    • Chiropractors
    • Optometrists
    • Physical therapists
  • Priority Three, Group C 
    • Pharmacists and pharmacy staff
    • Support staff working in healthcare offices

Phase 1B - Partially Being Distributed

  • Group A - Currently Being Distributed
    • Persons 75 years of age or older not covered in Phase 1A. This includes those in a congregate setting that were not reached in Phase 1A.
  • Group B - Currently Being Distributed
    • Frontline essential workers in sectors essential to the functioning of society and at substantially higher risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 because their work related duties must be performed on site and involve being in close proximity (i.e., within 6 feet) to the public or to coworkers.
      • Pre Kindergarten through High School teachers, support staff and child care workers who usually have direct contact with children
      • First responders not covered in Phase 1A (e.g., firefighters, police
      • Corrections workers (ex. prisons, jails, juvenile justice facilities)
      • Workers in homeless shelters, congregate child care institutions, and adult and child protective services
  • Group C - Distribution to be announced
    • Frontline essential workers in sectors essential to the functioning of society and at substantially higher risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 because their work related duties must be performed on site and involve being in close proximity (i.e., within 6 feet) to the public or to coworkers.
      • Food and agriculture workers
      • Critical manufacturing workers
      • U.S. Postal Service workers
      • Public transit workers
      • Grocery store workers
      • Workers with unique skill sets not covered above, such as non-hospital laboratories and mortuary services.

Phase 1C - Partially Being Distributed

  • Group A - Currently Being Distributed
    • Persons 65 years of age or older not covered in Phase 1A. This includes those in a congregate setting that were not reached in Phase 1A.
  • Group B - Distribution to be announced
    • Individuals age 16 years or older at high risk of severe illness due to COVID-19 infection and some other essential workers whose position impacts life, safety and protection during the COVID-19 response. 
    • Individuals age 16 to 64 years with COPD, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes, obesity or other conditions that puts them at high risk of negative COVID-19 outcome. 
    • Some other essential workers whose work must be performed on site, not covered in prior Phases, will also likely be vaccinated during this phase. MDHHS will adapt this guidance as vaccine availability becomes clearer.

Phase 2 

  • Distribution to be announced
    • Individuals age 16 or older who do not fit in the earlier groups.

The supply of vaccines will continually increase in the weeks and months that follow until everyone is able to receive a vaccine. The Moderna vaccine is currently recommended for ages 18 and older. Cost will not be an obstacle to getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

As more vaccine becomes available, the Health Department will continue to vaccinate the community based on the prioritization guidance from Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The Health Department will notify the community through media releases, social media posts and updates to the Health Department website when the vaccine is available to the various priority groups. 

Following vaccination, measures to stop the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, such as masks and social distancing, will still be needed.
