LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has partnered with 22 COVID-19 testing sites to additionally offer COVID-19 vaccines.
Following Lt. Gov. Gilchrist’s COVID-19 Racial Disparities Task Force, additional testing sites were added to help minimize disparities for people of color obtaining access to healthcare.
MDHHS sought to have these testing sites offer vaccines so that people could have easier access to testing and vaccines. Since the creation of the neighborhood testing sites, 121,247 vaccination doses have been given out.
We know the best way out of this pandemic is through strong public health interventions like wearing masks, testing, and most importantly the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. These neighborhood and community sites provide crucial and convenient access to testing and vaccines to ensure all Michiganders have equitable access to stay healthy and safe.”Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, MDHHS chief medical executive and chief deputy for health
