ALLEGAN, Mich. — The Allegan County Health Department announced that it has received its first round of the Moderna vaccine for Phase 1A distribution.

We’re told staff and volunteers at ACHD will be the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. They are expected to begin giving the vaccine to others on the first week of January.

The ACHD says the vaccine will only be given to healthcare workers per the CDC’s guidelines. Click here for more on vaccine prioritization.

Those interested in receiving the vaccine in the future are asked to fill out the “I want the COVID-19 Vaccine” form on their website to be notified when it is time to schedule an appointment.

“It is incredibly humbling to be part of the team providing the COVID-19 vaccine to our community members,” says Lisa Letts, personal health manager. “This is another tool that will bring us one step closer to a healthier Allegan County.”
