COVID-19 Vaccination Update (3/2/21)

Our vaccine supply from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services remains steady this week, and we continue our strategy of providing vaccine to our local health departments and employed physician groups, where eligible community residents and patients can more readily access it.

We anticipate that the Emergency Use Authorization of the third approved vaccine, made by Johnson & Johnson, will greatly increase vaccination efforts across the state beginning next week.

St. Joe’s now reserves doses of vaccine each week at many of its hospitals designated for eligible patients who reside in vulnerable zip codes. Hospital team members are conducting phone outreach to schedule appointments for these community members, many of whom may not have access to the internet and live in zip codes disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
