Scheduling is now open in Detroit for those who are immunocompromised and will require a COVID-19 booster shot, according to Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
At first, the third shots will be available beginning Tuesday (Aug. 17) only at the TCF Center drive via with a scheduled appointment.
“What we are seeing in Florida and other southern states today is what is headed our way,” Duggan. “As they have since the beginning of the pandemic, Detroiters are going to have the fastest and most convenient access to the vaccine SO they can remain protected. Just as we did before, we will expand access as quickly as the CDC and State allow.”
To book an appointment, residents should call 313-230-0505. They’ll be asked four questions before scheduling their slot:
Are you a Detroit resident?
Is your immune system limited or compromised?
Did you receive Pfizer or Moderna?
When was your second vaccination shot?
Each person is asked to bring his or her vaccination card to the appointment so it can be updated with the third dose.
CVS and Walgreens are also giving third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to people who are who are immunocompromised.
