The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services are beginning to provide updates on COVID-19 vaccination plans for Michigan including priority groups, vaccine development, the safety process, and more.
Current resources and information
pertaining to the MDHHS Vaccination Plan (Last updated: Dec. 11, 2020)
MDHHS follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for prioritizing the distribution and administration of COVID-19 vaccines for adults. As interim guidance, the CDC recommended that both 1) health care personnel and 2) residents of long-term care facilities be offered COVID-19 vaccine in the initial phase of the vaccination program. Long-term care is referenced as nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities.
The information in this document will change frequently as we learn more about COVID-19 vaccines. There is a lot we are learning as the pandemic and COVID-19 vaccines evolve. The approach in Michigan will adapt as we learn more.
