ALLEGAN, Mich. — Allegan County health officials have received their initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Staff members will begin administering the vaccine to the groups outlined in Phase 1A starting in the first week of January, according to the Allegan County Health Department, adding that it will be done by appointment only.
“This vaccine brings hope as we move to the next phase of the COVID-19 response,” says Medical Director Richard Tooker. “There have been over 3,100 individuals living or working in Allegan County who have signed up to receive a vaccine. Knowing this information now will help quickly direct communications to individuals when their phase can start making vaccine appointments.”
Health officials ask Allegan County residents to fill out the “I Want the COVID-19 Vaccine” form so they can be informed when it is their turn to be vaccinated. Healthcare workers who have not received the vaccine yet are asked to fill out the form as well.
