LANSING, Mich. – People who live or work in Ingham County are encouraged to just drive up today and tomorrow at the Michigan State University Pavilion to get vaccinated against COVID-19. People getting vaccinated will stay in their vehicles the entire time.
The Ingham County Health Department, in partnership with MSU, is offering the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at the Pavilion. Anyone age 16 and older is eligible for the vaccine, which is at no out-of-pocket cost.
“About half of the eligible population in Ingham County has been vaccinated,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. “We are now trying to reach segments of the population who have barriers or hesitations around the vaccine. Convenience is a factor for some people, and we are trying to make it easier to get vaccinated.”
Earlier this week, ICHD opened up its schedule to all Michigan residents. Anyone who lives in Michigan can visit the health department’s scheduling calendar to make an appointment. Pre-registration is no longer needed.
