EATON COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS)— The Barry-Eaton District Health Department (BEDHD) is now offering an option to self-schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

Those looking to do so and who are above the age of 18 can get started by clicking here.

At some clinic locations, same-day and next-day appointments may be available. Appointments for the upcoming week will be added every Friday at 3 pm.

If there are no appointments immediately available, persons interested in receiving an email with additional appointment options, should fill out the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form. An email will be sent to individuals who complete the form once new appointments open. Individuals may also check our website periodically throughout the week to check for cancelations.

People aged 16-17 must receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. BEDHD is receiving limited amounts of Pfizer vaccine to hold special clinics for people aged 16-17. 

Parents or guardians of a teenager aged 16 and 17 interested in receiving the COVID vaccine should visit BEDHD’s vaccine scheduling page to view upcoming Pfizer appointments. Currently, Pfizer clinics are planned for April 19th at the Lansing Mall and May 3rd and the Barry Expo Center.
