Western Michigan University is urging the community to get vaccinated for COVID-19, per an email from WMU COVID-19 Information. 

The state of Michigan expanded COVID-19 vaccination eligibility to encompass all adults Monday, April 5. Anyone who is at least 16 years old can receive a vaccine.

People can access their county health department’s vaccine information through the state’s COVID-19 response website

Store pharmacies, including Meijer and Rite Aid, are also administering vaccines.

The WMU community will be notified when Sindecuse Health Center is issued supply that will allow it to vaccinate campus community members.

“Expanded vaccination offers great hope for eventually ending the pandemic,” the email read. “Get vaccinated as soon as possible, and continue following COVID-19 safety practices—masking, physical distancing, frequently washing hands and avoiding large crowds. In time, these collective efforts will return our community to the normalcy we all desire.”

For more information about the vaccine, visit the frequently asked questions section on the university’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage.
