Vaccine Distribution Update

Updated 3:05 pm, April 30, 2021

Here are this week’s top updates from the Michigan Medicine patient vaccination program:

If You Haven’t Received an Invitation to Be Vaccinated

We have sent invitations to all established Michigan Medicine patients who are age 16 and up and living in the State of Michigan who have not gotten vaccinated elsewhere.

If you haven’t received an invitation to be vaccinated and believe you should have, please consider the following:

Did you get vaccinated somewhere else in the State of Michigan?

We are so pleased you made this decision to protect yourself and your community.

If you were vaccinated in the State of Michigan (excluding the VA), your vaccination record was entered into a statewide immunization database (MCIR) that securely connects with our electronic medical record system.

If your medical record shows that you have been vaccinated through another provider in the State of Michigan, you will not receive an invitation to be vaccinated at Michigan Medicine. This helps us move on to offer other patients vaccination once we have the reassurance that you have already received your immunization.

Are you an established Michigan Medicine patient?

The State of Michigan is allocating vaccine to hospitals based on a formula that factors in the number of patients they have. For this reason, right now we are only offering vaccine appointment invitations to patients who are currently under the care of a Michigan Medicine provider. 

For the most part, this would include anyone seen by a Michigan Medicine provider in the last 2-3 years. This may not include individuals who only visited one of our locations for a blood draw or a radiology procedure such as an x-ray or MRI.

Visit our Finding Vaccines page for tips on how to find a vaccine appointment in your area.

Have you checked the patient portal to be sure you don’t have an open invitation?

If you've received an invitation to schedule your vaccination appointment, it will be viewable on the MyUofMHealth patient portal. Log in to your portal account to find the appointment scheduling message on your home page, click the blue "Schedule Now" button, and then follow the steps to choose a location, date and time for your appointment.

For a detailed guide to scheduling your appointment, including screenshots of the patient portal, view or download the Scheduling Your COVID-19 Vaccine PDF.

If none of the above descriptions apply to you ...

If you have not been vaccinated elsewhere, have been under the care of a Michigan Medicine provider in the last 2 years, and have checked your portal account to be sure you don’t have an open invitation, you can call our hotline at 734-763-6336 for assistance.

J&J Vaccine Pause Lifted

Following a thorough safety review, the CDC and FDA have determined that the use of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine should resume. For more information, visit the associated article on the FDA website.

Michigan Medicine has not administered any of the J&J vaccine through our patient vaccine program. If you received the J&J vaccine as part of a research trial at Michigan Medicine, contact your study administrator with questions.
