LANSING, Mich. – On Monday, April 18 and 25, the Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) and Michigan State University (MSU) are partnering again to provide the COVID-19 vaccine, including first and second booster doses, to the MSU and greater East Lansing community. The COVID-19 vaccination clinics will take place at the Breslin Center with appointment availability from 2 to 7 pm. Individuals are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment using this link: https://hd.ingham.org/coronavirus/r_1014.aspx but walk-ins are also welcome.
Individuals (ages 12+) are eligible to receive their COVID-19 booster dose five months after receiving their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, or two months following the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. In addition to providing first booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, this clinic will offer first and second doses (5+ years), third doses for individuals who are immunocompromised (5+ years) and second booster doses for eligible individuals. Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available.
Second booster doses are available for eligible individuals, four months after their first booster dose. Eligible individuals includes anyone 50 years or older, individuals who are 12+ and moderately to severely immunocompromised, or individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for both their first dose and booster dose.
“One of our best prevention measures against COVID-19 is for individuals to ensure that they are up-to-date with all COVID-19 vaccine doses for which they are eligible,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda Vail. “We thank MSU for their continued partnership in assisting us to provide opportunities to the members of our community to receive the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.”
“COVID-19 vaccines are one of the few and most effective tools we have to prevent hospitalizations, severe illness and death,” said Michigan State University Physician David Weismantel. “I appreciate and thank the Ingham County Health Department for their continued partnership and collaboration to help protect our campus community and region with these safe and effective vaccines.”
For those attending the vaccination clinic, complimentary parking will be available in Lot 63 of the Breslin Center, off of Harrison Rd. Individuals will enter the Breslin Center through the Hall of History entrance located at the southeast corner of the building. Those getting vaccinated should bring their COVID-19 vaccination record card, identification card, and insurance card with them to their appointment, if possible.
