BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Last weeks winter storm has caused the Berrien County Health Department to postpone previously scheduled appointments.

Those who had appointments for Tuesday, Feb. 23 have been rescheduled to receive their vaccine dose on Monday, March 1 at the same time of their previously scheduled appointment. If Monday, March 1st will not be possible; clients are strongly encouraged to come for their 2nd dose on that date.

“No one should worry that they will not be guaranteed their second dose of the vaccine due to this clinic postponement,” said Berrien County Health Officer, Nicki Britten. “Vaccine doses are secure for those who had an appointment, albeit slightly delayed by unfortunate winter storms experienced by much of the county within the last week.”

At this time, first dose COVID-19 vaccine appointments scheduled at senior centers on Wednesday and Thursday of this week are not impacted. Questions regarding the delays may be directed to the BCHD COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-815-5485 or email at
