Online Registration Available for
COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments 
The Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) is excited to introduce a new online registration system to schedule vaccine appointments. This registration portal will act as a waitlist for COVID-19 vaccine appointments moving forward. Once pre-registered with our system, a follow-up email and/or text will be sent when new vaccine clinics are available to sign up for. This online scheduler allows for a much more streamlined process for scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
 
CCPHD will continue following the State of Michigan’s vaccine eligibility guidelines. For frontline essential workers in Phase 1B whose employers have previously submitted a CCPHD Form 1B, we will continue scheduling your work groups at upcoming clinics. Beginning Monday, March 22, vaccine eligibility will again expand to include all Michiganders 50 and older, as well as individuals 16-49 with underlying conditions. Eligibility expands again on April 5 to all individuals 16 and older.

Individuals can register using the online scheduler on Calhoun County's COVID-19 vaccine information webpage, calhouncountymi.gov/covidvaccine.
 
People with limited internet access can call the Calhoun County COVID-19 Call Center at 269-969-6990 for assistance in scheduling an appointment. This method for making appointments should be reserved for those who cannot access the website.
 
It is likely that registered individuals will have to wait before an appointment is available, and CCPHD asks for continued patience as we move through the eligibility list with local healthcare partners.
