COVID Vaccine Guide

Recently Covid-19 vaccines have become available in Wayne County. With many Wayne County Covid-19 cases being from Detroit with 63,430 total cases Dearborn is the second most with 8,523 cases, places are currently beginning to offer vaccines to the public. However, the process of doing so can be confusing and tough due to the  limited amount of vaccines available.

The first thing you need to think about when trying to get vaccinated is see if you’re eligible due to the fact that people in certain occupations are prioritized in terms of being given the vaccine, this was announced on December 10th 2020 when the vaccine was first released by Governor Whitmer. Occupations have been divided into groups like essential frontline workers and essential non-healthcare workers. The groups include: 1A (Health Care Personnel), 1B (First Responders, Corrections Workers, Food and Agriculture, Grocery Store Workers, Education, Manufacturing, or Public Transit Workers) or 1C (Shelter and Housing,IT and Communication, News Media, Public Safety, or Not explicitly included).

Once you have figured out what cycle you are in and if you can receive it, here are some possible areas you can get vaccinated in near Wayne County:

Usually they reach out to a school to see if the teachers need vaccines, so this is good to keep in mind if you are a teacher. Volunteering is also a great way to get vaccinated, they are giving all of their volunteers who help distribute the vaccine free vaccinations. 

Everything you need to get our vaccine is done, but you can never be too prepared. So remember that because Covid-19 is still very prevalent, when waiting for your vaccine the vendor may have you wait outside socially distanced from other citizens and ask for your identification. Basically, you need to also wear the proper attire and have your personal information on you. This means, wear a jacket and other warm clothes, bring and wear a mask for protection, and most importantly bring you license and/or registration of some type to prove your identity.
