ALLEGAN, Mich. — The Allegan County Health Department and the Gun Lake Tribe held a donation ceremony Wednesday morning for a mobile vaccination unit.

It’ll give the community more ways to access public health services and includes two exam rooms, a lab with a medical fridge, a waiting area and a restroom, according to a news release.

ACHD is planning to first use it for COVID-19 vaccine clinics for vulnerable groups that have a harder time accessing currently available clinics.

“We are thankful for the funs Gun Lake Tribe donated to make this mobile clinic a reality for Allegan County,” ACHD Health Officer Angelique Joynes said. “Transportation has been identified as a barrier in our Community Needs Assessment for getting care. This mobile clinic allows us to bring our services to our Allegan County communities.”
