We are working to get more information about this expansion, so we appreciate your patience as we try to answer your questions. The information currently available from our local health department is as follows:
I now qualify under the expansion guidelines. How do I register for the vaccine?
The Kent County Health Department urges all eligible residents to visit vaccinatewestmi.com and complete a vaccination registration form with a local provider. Providers are working to update their registration forms with qualifying questions to reflect the expansion. Forms should be updated by Monday.
The state also suggests that eligible residents check additional vaccination sites, such as local pharmacies like Meijer and Rite Aid.
Residents who don't have access to the internet or who need assistance navigating the vaccine scheduling process can call the COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 (press 1) or call 2-1-1.
