If you are a person with a disability or medical condition that prevents you from going to a COVID-19 vaccine clinic, you can now receive the COVID-19 vaccination and booster in your own home.
Staff at Disability Network Northern Michigan are helping people throughout their covered counties to access this Homebound COVID-19 Vaccine Initiative. Persons who are considered homebound would be those that have a disability that discourages or prevents them from leaving their home. Covered counties include Alpena, Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Crawford, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, Montmorency, Oscoda, Otsego, Presque Isle and Wexford counties.
Disability Network Northern Michigan is grateful to be able to partner with a home service provider that administers the vaccine in the field for people with disabilities. All three types of vaccines that are authorized and approved for use are available. Scheduling will begin on January 17, 2022, with in-home visits beginning the week of January 24, 2022. These services are provided at no cost to the recipients.
If you are interested in participating in the Homebound COVID-19 Vaccine Initiative, please call Disability Network Northern Michigan at 231 922 0903, or register online at disabilitynetwork.org. If you are in a county not covered by Disability Network Northern Michigan, please call the Disability Information and Access Line at 888 677 1199 for vaccination location assistance.
