MCHD Vaccination Clinic FAQs

SCHEDULING QUESTIONS

Can adolescents ages 12-17 get vaccinated through MCHD at this time?
Yes - However, at this time, only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for use in individuals under age 18. Because we have received Pfizer inconsistently, we recommend also registering individuals ages 12-17 for vaccination through additional providers (such as their healthcare providers, local pharmacies, grocery store pharmacies, etc.).

There may be specific clinics where we know we are receiving Pfizer and a 12-17 year old can be directly scheduled online. In these situations, we will specifically note that on the YELLOW appointment scheduling icons above.

PLEASE NOTE: No vaccines are authorized at this time for individuals under age 16. Please do not schedule an individual until their 12th birthday or later. We will provide updates for the public as soon as vaccine eligibility opens to additional age groups.

Do minors need consent to receive vaccinations?
Yes - Minors who are eligible for vaccination will need a parent and/or legal guardian to accompany them to their appointment in order to provide consent to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

I was able to schedule an appointment elsewhere and would like to cancel my appointment with MCHD - Who should I contact?
If you need to cancel you appointment with us after confirming an appointment elsewhere, please call 734-240-7925 or email covidvaccine@monroemi.org to let us know.

What phone number will appear if you are contacting me via phone regarding any questions or issues?
If we need to contact an individual via phone, our phone number will show up as COUNTY OF MONROE (734-240-7000).

CLINIC QUESTIONS


Will assistance be available at the clinic if I have mobility issues?

Yes - We have wheelchairs available for use as well as staff and volunteers happy to be of assistance for any individuals with mobility limitations.

How early should I arrive for my scheduled appointment?
Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. 

Can I still attend my appointment if I am in quarantine as a close contact of a COVID case?
No - If you are currently in your quarantine period as a close contact of a COVID case, call (734) 240-7925 to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

Can I still attend my appointment if I am in isolation after testing positive for COVID, or am awaiting COVID test results?
No - If you are currently in isolation after testing positive OR awaiting test results, call (734) 240-7925 to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

MCHD vaxx safe
We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated. Safety is the first priority. The process used to authorize the COVID-19 vaccines is the same proven process that was used to create safe and effective vaccines for the flu, polio, measles, whooping cough and more. While the COVID-19 vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine authorized for use.

This vaccine CANNOT make you sick with COVID-19. This vaccine gives your body a code which helps it recognize the virus, so your body can fight it off in the future. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19. Learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work.

More information about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine is available at the CDC and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) website:
• CDC - Information About the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine (Johnson & Johnson)
• CDC - Information About the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine
• CDC - Information About the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
