Wayne County and the City of Dearborn have both greatly expanded their options for residents interested in getting a COVID vaccine.  Both are now taking appointments and providing walk-in vaccinations for all who are eligible.  Note, those who are 16 and 17 years old will need to use a Wayne County site.

No appointment is needed to get a COVIID 19 vaccine at Dearborn’s vaccination center through Thursday, April 22.  This site is open to anyone 18 or older who lives in Wayne County. Most people are in and out within 25 minutes. 

Walk-ins are welcome at the Consolidated Vaccination Center in Dearborn 8 a.m. to noon, 1:30 to 6 p.m., and 6:30 to 7 p.m.  The center is in the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave.

Appointments are still preferred and are the most efficient way to get a shot. Make one at www.cityofdearborn.org/covid

The vaccines are the two-dose Moderna shots. Moderna is approved for those 18 and over. 

Masks covering your mouth and nose are required to enter and remain in the building. People will be screened at the door as part of the health protocol.

The Consolidated Vaccination Center is supported by Wayne County.

The Wayne County Health Department has added new COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Belleville and Flat Rock in addition to its site in Taylor. The expansion will increase the County’s weekly capacity to as many as 20,000 administered doses. 

All County sites will accept residents and workers age 16 and older from all Wayne County communities.  

Walk-up appointments are welcomed during regular clinic hours from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday at all three locations. 

Residents and workers may still schedule a vaccination appointment with the Wayne County Health Department by calling toll-free 1-866-610-3885.  City of Detroit residents should call 313-230-0505 to schedule an appointment through the Detroit Health Department.  All County sites will offer the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, depending on current supplies and shipments.

The Belleville clinic opened April 19 at Wayne County Community College-Ted Scott Campus, 9555 Haggerty Road, Belleville. The Flat Rock clinic also opened April 19 at the Flat Rock Community Center, 1 Maguire Street, Flat Rock. 

In addition to the two new clinics, the Wayne County Public Health Department welcomes walk-up appointments at its Taylor Clinic at the Wayne County Community College – Downriver Campus, 21000 Northline Rd., Taylor.

“Our goal is to get as many shots in arms as fast as we can, and to make it easy for our residents to do that,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. “We have vaccines. Now is the time for everyone to get vaccinated. The surest way we can put this pandemic behind us is for everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
