COVID Vaccine Update
Starting Monday, the City of Detroit will begin scheduling 20,000 COVID vaccination appointments at the TCF center over the next four weeks, based on the anticipated supply of vaccines from the state, Mayor Mike Duggan announced today. Those vaccines will be available initially to the following groups:
Who is Eligible to receive the vaccine at TCF?
- Any Detroit resident 75 and older
- Any “good neighbor" 65 and older who drives a 75 year old to TCF
- Group B essential workers, including K-12 teachers and support staff and child care workers
Access to vaccinations at TCF gradually will expand to other eligible groups as the supply of doses provided to the City allows.
How to schedule an appointment
Starting Monday, Detroit residents age 75 and older and their “good neighbor” drivers 65 and over, will be able to call 313-230-0505 starting Monday to schedule an appointment at the TCF center. The first appointment will take place on Wednesday.
