OT's Spring Ahead Open House & Day of Giving

Operation Transformation is having an Open House and Day of Giving on Thursday, March 19th. We are asking for people to help us “Spring Ahead” financially. Our goal is to raise $25,000, and we have $5,000 in matching funds that will be doubled! If you believe in the mission of Operation Transformation, please consider making a contribution and help us take advantage of this very generous opportunity on March 18th! Feel free to stop by the Open House from 9:00-3:00 at 1904 Poplar St., Port Huron (masks will be required). Everyone is welcome to come meet the staff, learn more about OT’s major projects and enjoy some light refreshments. Donations can be made by calling 810-966-8660 or on our website, www.optrans.org, if you will not be attending in person.

Eligibility Groups for COVID-19 Vaccination Expands
St. Clair County Health Department Encourages Residents to Pre-register
 
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced the following changes to the priority groups now eligible for vaccination effective beginning:
·         March 1, food processing and agricultural workers (further defined here).  
·         March 8, individuals age 50 and older with medical conditions or disabilities
·         March 8, caregiver family members and guardians who care for children with special health care needs.
·         March 22, any individual age 50 and older
 
Dr. Annette Mercatante, Medical Health Officer stated “Expanding vaccine eligibility allows us to continue to make progress in our goal of vaccinating the majority of our population as quickly as possible. Despite limited supply, about 15% of St. Clair County’s population has been vaccinated with one or more doses, and close to 35% of those over age 65.”
 
As vaccine supplies allow, the St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD) will continue to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for all eligible individuals. Adults over the age of 65 will continue to be prioritized.
 
The SCCHD encourages all interested individuals living or working in St. Clair County to pre-register at www.scchealth.co; click on the “Pre-registration for COVID-19 Vaccine” link.
 
Eligible individuals are encouraged to register at any location offering vaccine. If an appointment is not received through the health department, please do one of the following so your name can be removed:
·         Decline the appointment when you contacted; or
·         Sign-in on the registration system and delete your profile; or
·         Email covid19@stclaircounty.org or call (810) 966-4163
 
This is a rapidly evolving situation. Email questions regarding COVID-19 to covid19@stclaircounty.org or call the informational hotline (810) 966-4163. Visit the website www.scchealth.co and follow us on social media @scchdmi.
