New clinics will also offer days with extended hours to better accommodate working residents.
WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. - Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans today announced the opening of two new COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Lincoln Park and Harper Woods for county residents aged 16 and older. This brings the total number of county-run vaccine clinics to 6 and ensures most residents are no more than 20 minutes from a vaccination location.
Residents can call 1-866-610-3885 to schedule an appointment at the clinics or can walk-in during normal hours of operation. Complete vaccination clinic locations and hours are available at www.wayne county.com/covid19. The vaccines are always provided at no cost to residents.
"The fastest way we can return to normal it is to get as many shots in arms as fast as we can, and to make it easy for our residents to do that," Executive Evans said. "These new clinics further help make the vaccine more accessible to more residents across Wayne County."
The Lincoln Park clinic, which opens on Tuesday, May 4, will be located at the Lincoln Park Community Center (3525 Dix Hwy) and operate from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday as well as 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm on Wednesday.

"It is so important that everyone who can get vaccinated against COVID-19 is able to do so," said Melita Jordan, Director of the Wayne County Department of Health, Human, and Veterans Services. "The vaccines, which are both safe and effective, can allow us to safely end this pandemic and begin returning life to normal."
