BLDHD COVID-19 Vaccine Update

January 27th, 2021

 

We continue to hold clinics in each county weekly of varying size as vaccine allocations allow. We are exploring options to continue these as well as rotate locations to make clinics more accessible to all residents.  

Our biggest challenge continues to be available supply of vaccine. We have been able to successfully vaccinate over 300 individuals at our clinic sites and have the ability to increase our capacity through expanded staffing as well as National Guard, and community volunteers.  

These comments have been shared by community members:  

“We wanted to let you know we were really impressed with the entire process, especially with the workers.  We cannot begin to comprehend the logistics that go into staging an operation like this, but from our vantage point, it was all executed beautifully.  Congratulations and bravo!” 

“I want to compliment the District for how smoothly the process operated.” 

“Thank you and everyone at BLDHD for keeping us safe and protected.” 

The estimated number of doses needed to fully vaccinate all those in Phase 1A and Phase 1B in the Benzie-Leelanau Health jurisdiction is approximately 30,000 doses. The estimated time to complete vaccinating individuals 65 years and older and those eligible essential workers is mid-July 2021. Here is where we are currently:  

 

  •  Number of vaccine doses administered this week: 164 doses 

  •  Number of vaccine doses remain available this week: 40 doses  

  •  Total number of vaccine doses received: 1,800 doses  

  •  Total number of vaccine doses administered: 1,760 doses
