Genesee County Vaccine Update
In Genesee County, pre-registration for COVID-19 vaccination appointments is currently open to the following individuals:
To pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment:
If you pre-registered (online or via phone), you will receive a phone call or email when an appointment is available. If you pre-registered for your COVID- 19 vaccine with the GCHD but you have already received your COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere, please let them know by filling out this short survey, so they can remove you from the list.
I also encourage you to register with Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Meijer, Walmart and other local pharmacies that offer the vaccine, to increase your chances of getting the vaccine early. These pharmacies receive vaccines on their own schedule and do not have to report them to the state. I will continue to work to ensure our area secures the necessary doses to keep our community safe and protected, and that every Genesee County resident who wants a COVID vaccine is able to get one.
For vaccine information in Genesee County, please visit https://www.gchd.us/covid19vaccine/ and for state COVID-19 vaccine information, please visit Michigan.gov/COVIDVACCINE.

National Work Zone Awareness Week – April 26-30
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual event that focuses national attention on worker and motorist safety in work zones. This year, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is hosting the 2021 NWZAW kick-off event on April 27 with the theme, “Drive Safe. Work Safe. Save Lives.” The themed poster below features a vehicle driving along a winding road surrounded by work zone technologies that make work zones safer for workers and motorists.
Drive Safe. A reminder that work zones need everyone’s undivided attention. When approaching a work zone, motorists should always slow down, follow all posted signs, be alert, and remain calm. Risky driving behavior affects more than just the driver – everyone’s lives and families are at stake.
Work Safe. Technology is helping to make work zones safer by collecting data and automating processes, which can remove workers from dangerous situations and provide motorists with important information. It is also a reminder that work zone safety begins with workers who are dedicated to safety.
Save Lives. If we ALL work together, we can achieve zero deaths on our roads and in our work zones!
