Genesee County Vaccine Update

With vaccine supplies increasing, the Genesee County Health Department (GCHD) is no longer using the pre-registration process. They are now offering walk-in, NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED, vaccination clinics. Anyone ages 16 and older, living or working in Genesee County, is eligible for vaccination through the health department. If you know someone who is unable to access the website or internet – please have them call the COVID-19 Call Center at (810) 344-4800 for help. Please reserve their phone lines for those unable to use the online resources.

Supporting Roadway Safety Professionals

Members of the Michigan Legislature wore orange last week to show support for roadway safety professionals across the country. ‘Go Orange Day’ and ‘National Work Zone Awareness Week,’ that takes place April 26-30, is an important time to show support for the roadway safety industry, especially for the families of victims who have lost their lives in work zones.

Participation in the ‘Know More Genesee Opioid Awareness Survey’ will help enhance existing opioid-response efforts and assist with the development of additional resources and pathways for local opioid prevention and treatment services.
