Michigan Medicine plans to do a small amount of vaccinations on Monday in addition to vaccinating groups of employees on Tuesday.
The health care system has about 28,000 employees, so the first shipment is a limited supply.
Michigan Medicine says it has implemented a phased approach for employees consistent with recommended guidelines from federal and state health agencies.
It will ramp up vaccinations next week depending on supply.
