Please take a look at the latest information (compiled by SAMOSA) on COVID vaccine options in South East Michigan.
At present, COVID vaccine is being administered through several channels. Health care workers are the top priority followed by residents age 65+. In addition to hospitals, there are programs through your County’s health department. Large pharmacy drug stores are also receiving supplies and have started vaccinating residents.
It is expected that the pace of vaccination will pick up rapidly in the next month.
President Biden has stated that 300 million vaccine doses will be available by July 2021. This should help us start leading more normal lives later this summer.
Many Michigan Indians are also hoping to travel to India after receiving the vaccination so that they can feel safe. CDC has warned people to continue to adhere to mask and safety protocols even after getting vaccinated. This will stop the virus from spreading as vaccinated people can still be carriers of the virus.
Please take look at the information below to get registered for COVID vaccine. This information is subject to change as more channels are added. Please share any updates with us firstname.lastname@example.org
Be safe! Stay healthy!

Receiving your Vaccine through the Hospital System:
To our knowledge, all hospitals (U of M, Beaumont, Henry Ford, & Ascension) are currently
randomly contacting qualified individuals so if you do not have any account (mychart) with them,
please try to make one.
We hear that if you call Beaumont and tell them you don’t have access to a computer, they will
automatically connect you with a person to help you schedule (if you are eligible). Here is the
