NEWYAGO COUNTY, Mich. — Newyago County health officials say its District Health Department #10 is at capacity for COVID-19 vaccination clinics because of supply shortages.

The registration link on the department’s website has been removed as a result and will be replaced once they’re able to schedule appointments again.

“Unfortunately, the state was unable to supply the number of doses we ordered, which requires us to make adjustments to our vaccine clinics,” said Kevin Hughes, health officer for DHD#10. “We understand this disruption may cause frustration, but please know we are doing everything we can to deliver the vaccine as soon as the supply is accessible.”

Some individuals who are currently scheduled to receive the vaccine next week may be cancelled or rescheduled. They will be notified via email.
