Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial to offer vaccines this Tuesday, Thursday
Appointments required to manage limited vaccine supply
FREMONT, Mich., Jan. 25, 2021 – In response to the State of Michigan expanding eligibility for vaccination, Spectrum Health will begin vaccinating adults age 65 and over, and certain essential workers.
Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial will offer vaccines by appointment on Tuesday, Jan. 26, and Thursday, Jan. 28. When an appointment is scheduled, the individual will receive information on location and time. Availability will depend on supplies of vaccines.
To find out more about scheduling a vaccination, go to
www.spectrumhealth.org/vaccine. Once at the page, scroll down to “COVID-19 vaccine scheduling” for step-by-step directions. Community members are also encouraged to download the Spectrum Health app and sign up for a MyChart account, which is a key step in the scheduling process for a vaccination appointment.
For those who are eligible for a vaccine and unable to use MyChart to complete their registration, call 833.755.0696.
As more vaccines become available, additional clinics will be announced.
Spectrum Health is working with community partners and area health departments to plan additional vaccine sites across the region in the coming weeks—including clinics for under-represented communities—in an effort to make the vaccine as accessible as possible for all individuals.
Vaccine distribution is dependent on vaccine supply, which varies from week-to-week. Scheduling will take place as Spectrum Health receives vaccine doses. As of Monday, Spectrum Health has administered more than 49,000 vaccines.
Per the State of Michigan, essential workers, including teachers and others, should work through their employers to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination.
