Lenawee County Health Department and ProMedica Partner to Provide COVID-19 Vaccine

Both the Lenawee County Health Department and ProMedica Hickman 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.

The health department will focus on vaccinating EMS, health department staff who will be vaccinating the community and those frontline healthcare workers not affiliated with ProMedica or a larger organization. ProMedica will be vaccinating their staff and those affiliated with the healthcare system.

The staff and residents of long-term care facilities will be vaccinated through a federal partnership with CVS and Walgreens pharmacies.

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. Additionally, Lenawee County provides regular email updates regarding COVID-19; individuals who wish to receive these updates can make the request to kim.murphy@lenawee.mi.us .

More information regarding the COVID vaccine can be found at the health department website here. Individuals with questions regarding whether they should receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available, should consult with their healthcare provider.

“While the vaccine provides a new sense of hope for the future, it will be critical that we continue to wear face masks, maintain social distance and avoid large gatherings. It is my hope that all residents who are able, will be vaccinated when the vaccine is available to them” stated Martha Hall, Health Officer at the Lenawee County Health Department.
