Health department establishes vaccine waiting list for seniors. 

District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) announced today that seniors ages 65 and older can get on a waiting list for the COVID-19 vaccine. 

There is now an online Waitlist Registration posted on the department’s website at www.dhd10.org. The link will open to a scheduling assistant. The interested must select a date and time to proceed to the next step. That next step will not schedule an actual appointment. It is only placing the person on the waiting list. For those who complete the registration, they will receive an email with an appointment date, time, and location as soon as the vaccine is available.

For those seniors who do not have access to technology, there is a hotline number to call: 231-715-5557. Someone will assist the person in getting on the waiting list. Once they are on the waiting list, they will be contacted when the vaccine is available so you can be scheduled to receive it.

People are being asked to only complete the waitlist registration or to call to register, but not do both. Doing both could cause duplication and could result in the name being deleted.

“DHD#10 has partnered with the Area Agency on Aging, senior centers across our jurisdiction, and other community partners to assist us with getting our seniors on the waiting list for the vaccine when it is available,” said Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD#10. “We ask that only those who are 65 and older complete the waitlist registration provided or call the hotline at this time. Do not do both.”

DHD#10 continues to prioritize health care workers in Phase 1A and some in Phase 1B including seniors 65 and older, first responders, and jail/corrections staff. We are also working with schools directly to plan for their vaccination clinics.
