Ottawa County:

Morning appointments at Ottawa County’s second dose clinic at the GVSU Holland campus originally set up for 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. were rescheduled for Feb. 10.

As of Friday morning, appointments scheduled between 1-4 p.m. remain unchanged.

However, the Ottawa County Health Department says that if road and weather conditions continue to worsen, the afternoon appointments may also be rescheduled.

Kent County:

No appointments were rescheduled because of weather Friday at the Kent County Health Department.

But all appointments will be honored regardless of when individuals arrive in order to allow them to drive slower and take other precautions on the road.

The last appointment will still need to arrive by 4:30 p.m. in order to be honored.

Anyone who misses their appointment will be contacted next week to reschedule.

Kalamazoo County:

Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services will be closed Friday because of inclement weather.

Calhoun County:

Vaccinations scheduled for Saturday are expected to continue as planned.

If Michigan State Police issues a No Travel Advisory because of inclement weather, Saturday’s appointments will automatically be rescheduled and individuals will be contacted by the Calhoun County Public Health Department.
