Michigan allowed everyone ages 16 and older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on April 5. With this, options for finding appointments have expanded across the state and will continue as more vaccines are available to the public. Here are some of these options for where to get vaccinated in Kalamazoo.
Kalamazoo County provides vaccines for all Kalamazoo residents 16 years old and over. Appointment times are released in batches every Monday at 7 a.m., noon and 5 p.m.
Appointments can be made through the county’s website. Those without internet access can call the county at (269) 373-5200 beginning at 8 a.m., each Monday.
After the appointment is made, people should print and complete the Registration Form ahead of their appointment, if able. At the scheduled appointment time and date, go to the designated location and follow instructions at the site.
Bronson Healthcare patients can also receive the vaccine, Patients can sign up for an appointment through their MyChart. Someone from Bronson will reach out when it is time to schedule the appointment. Vaccine appointments are based on prioritization criteria from the state and vaccine supply.
Sindecuse Health Center also offers vaccines to the Western Michigan University community. Sindecuse will hold vaccine clinics and open new appointments as vaccine supply becomes available to them. When this happens, information on how to sign up will be sent out to the campus community.
Students, faculty, staff and retirees are all eligible to receive the vaccine through the health center. Appointments will be open to dependents as supplies allow. Vaccine appointments can be made through Sindecuse’s patient portal or by calling (269) 387-3287.
