WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — The Wayne County Health Department has opened COVID-19 vaccination clinics to residents and workers 16 and older from Ecorse, Inkster, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Melvindale and River Rouge.

Appointments are available by calling 1-866-610-3885. The clinics will be held in Taylor and Livonia.

Due to limited vaccine supply, the health department is scheduling appointments for residents and workers from the most vulnerable communities with the highest social vulnerability index, as calculated by the CDC.

“Vaccination is the one thing that can end this deadly pandemic and safely return life to normal,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. “Now that we are able to expand vaccine eligibility, the right time for residents to get their shot is right now.”

Wayne County Health Department vaccination clinics are located at:

Wayne County Community College

Downriver Campus
21000 Northline Rd.
Taylor, MI 48180

Schoolcraft College

VisTaTech Center
18600 Haggerty Rd.
Livonia, MI 48152

Depending on vaccine supply, appointments will be scheduled for both clinics, Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Transportation to clinics is available and, upon request, will be arranged through SMART when residents call to make an appointment.

“Expanded eligibility is a critical next step in combating COVID-19, so Wayne County is committed to ensuring wide vaccine accessibility,” said Wayne County Chief Operating Officer Genelle Allen. “Vaccine equity is essential to fully protecting our communities. That’s why Wayne County is making it easier for residents and workers to schedule appointments by phone and to obtain transportation assistance.”

Due to anticipated high call volume, residents and workers are encouraged to be patient when attempting to schedule an appointment and are urged to call back at different times of the day if they receive a busy signal.
