Of those 47,166 doses, 24,369 were initial doses and 22,797 were completion doses (fully vaccinated).

How will clinics be offered and how to schedule? 

As of 6/8/2021, 84.0% of residents 65 and over and 70.6% of all residents 16 and over in Benzie and Leelanau Counties have received their first or initial dose. For anyone who still needs their 1st or 2nd dose, the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department is offering self-scheduling for vaccination clinics, accepting walk-ins, and offering community pop-up clinics in targeted areas where vaccination rates are lower.  

The Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department is offering regular weekly COVID-19 vaccine clinics.  The Leelanau County clinic will be held on Tuesdays in Suttons Bay at the Old Middle School from 10:00-12:00 pm and the Benzie County clinic will be held on Thursdays at Crystal Café in Benzonia from 2:00-6:00 pm. Starting on June 23rd, the Benzie County clinic at Crystal Cafe will move to Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 pm. These clinics will be open to first or second dose appointments, offering all three vaccines, and walk-ins will be accepted. Easy appointment scheduling can be found at www.bldhd.org

Additional vaccination sites can be found at vaccines.gov.  

Residents can easily choose the date and location for their appointment on our website. If you need a second dose of Moderna or Pfizer after receiving your first dose elsewhere, please locate an appointment date that is at least 4 weeks after your first Moderna dose or at least 3 weeks after your first Pfizer dose. Anyone who needs assistance scheduling an appointment should call 2-1-1 or their local Senior Services.
