Newaygo County clinics move to new location, combine days
From our friends at DHD#10:
February 16, 2021 – District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) announces that Newaygo County COVID-19 vaccine appointments scheduled for this Friday, February 19 and Saturday, February 20 at DHD#10 in White Cloud will now all take place on Saturday, February 20 at NCRESA (Newaygo County Regional Education Service Agency) located at 4747 W. 48th Street in Fremont.
Individuals impacted by the change initially received their first dose at DHD#10’s White Cloud office on January 22 and 23 and were scheduled to receive their second dose on February 19 and 20. Due to over 500 people scheduled those two days, DHD#10 was able to secure a larger facility and obtain assistance from the National Guard to host one large vaccine clinic.
“Similar to the COVID-19 testing clinics we held this summer with the help of the National Guard, the state has contracted with them again to assist us with larger vaccine clinics,” stated Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD#10. “Having the National Guard there allows us to accommodate more people and helps our clinics run more efficiently.”
If you are scheduled to receive your second dose at DHD#10’s White Cloud office on February 19 or 20, please go to NCRESA in Fremont on Saturday, February 20 at the same time you were initially scheduled to receive your COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine clinic is by appointment only – please no walk-ins.
We ask that you refrain from calling the health department to ask about scheduling the vaccine. For questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
