On April 5, all Michigan residents 16 and older became eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. As access to vaccines increases, Michigan residents have numerous choices when it comes to where to get the vaccine. The Michigan Daily has compiled a list of pharmacies and pop-up sites currently scheduling vaccine appointments, and we will continuously update this list as new opportunities arise.
Specifically for U-M students:
From April 15-20
Following a recommended pause of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines, U-M will offer Pfizer vaccines at Meijer on Ann Arbor-Saline Rd. on Thursday, April 15 and Friday, April 16. It will also offer Pfizer vaccines on April 13 and 14 at Michigan Indoor Athletics Training Facility. Students can sign up here and are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.
Central Student Government is providing free bus transportation for students getting vaccinated at Meijer Thursday and Friday. More information, including bus routes and times, can be found here.
On April 21
From April 22-23
The Meijer pharmacy at 3145 Ann Arbor-Saline Road has opened up 1,170 new appointments on each day and will be administering the Pfizer vaccine. To register students can sign up online or text “GoBlue” to 75049.
Up-to-date information about U-M scheduled vaccination clinics can be found here.
Other places you can sign up:
CVS has limited locations in Michigan where they are offering COVID-19 vaccines, including locations in Ann Arbor and Detroit. Anyone 16 and up is eligible to receive the vaccine. Walk-ins are not accepted. Sign up online here.
Rite Aid consistently receives COVID-19 vaccine shipments from the federal government since they are designated a Federal Retail Pharmacy Partner. Interested residents can go to this link to fill out a qualification form, which should then prompt you to sign up for an appointment at a local Rite Aid. Once you receive the first dose, you will automatically be signed up for a second appointment time.
There are three ways you can sign up to receive a first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine from Walgreens: by calling your local Walgreens, searching for appointments online or through the Walgreens application downloadable on smartphones. Sign up online here by clicking “schedule new appointment.”
On Feb. 17, Kroger announced that they would use a vaccine scheduling tool to help customers schedule vaccinations at 1,300 of its 2,200 pharmacies around the country. The online registration can process more than 250,000 requests each day. You can sign up here.
Meijer is offering 6,000 vaccinations a day at Ford Field in downtown Detroit until early June. In the first week, over 14,000 people were vaccinated at the clinic. You can register here or text EndCovid to 75049. Once you get to Ford Field, Meijer staff will help you check-in, and an onsite pharmacist will assist you with the process of getting the vaccine.
Veteran Vaccine Clinic
On Saturday, April 17, the Detroit Veterans Affairs is hosting a walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at 16200 Dix-Toledo Road, Southgate MI 48195.
All veterans, spouses of veterans and caregivers will be eligible for the Moderna vaccine following the recommended pause of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines. The Detroit VA will also provide a follow-up clinic on May 15 for those who receive the first dose on April 17. Staff will help eligible veterans enroll in the VA services if they have not yet registered for VA services.
