WAYNE COUNTY EXPANDS COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINICS TO INCLUDE RESIDENTS,  WORKERS FROM 17 COMMUNITIES

Appointments available through toll-free number (1-866-610-3885) operated by THAW

WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. - The Wayne County Health Department is expanding eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine to all residents and workers aged 16 and older from Ecorse, Inkster, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Melvindale, River Rouge, Romulus, Wayne, Lincoln Park, Dearborn Heights, Harper Woods, Westland, Belleville, Redford, Taylor, Dearborn, and Flat Rock at clinics in Taylor and Livonia effective immediately.

Appointments are available by calling 1-866-610-3885. The toll-free number is managed in partnership with The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW). The Wayne County/THAW call center will be open Mondays-Fridays from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.

Because of limited vaccine supply from the state of Michigan, the Wayne County Health Department is first scheduling appointments for residents and workers from the most vulnerable communities with the highest Social Vulnerability Index (SVI), as calculated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Appointment times for other communities will be announced by the County as it works through the prioritized community list. Up-to-date scheduling information can be found online at www.waynecounty.com/covid19.

Wayne County Health Department vaccination clinics are located at:

Wayne County Community College
Downriver Campus
21000 Northline Rd.
Taylor, MI 48180

Schoolcraft College
VisTaTech Center
18600 Haggerty Rd.
Livonia, MI 48152


Depending on vaccine supply, appointments will be scheduled for both clinics, Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Transportation to clinics is available and, upon request, will be arranged through SMART when residents call to make an appointment.

Order of Wayne County Community Vaccine Scheduling

Order is determined based on Social Vulnerability Index. Number 1 is highest-ranked SVI and Number 42 is lowest-ranked SVI. Vaccine scheduling will proceed from 1 to 42 (highest to lowest). The City of Detroit maintains its own public health jurisdiction and is not included in this ranking. The SVI level for each community, as calculated by the CDC, is listed in parentheses below. SVI ranges from 0 (lowest) to 1 (highest). For more information on how the SVI is calculated, visit https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/placeandhealth/svi/index.html.
