BLDHD COVID-19 Vaccine Update
January 20th, 2021
Reminder, this list is not the COVID-19 Vaccine sign up list. To sign up for that, here is the link. Please do not fill out the form more than once.
After receiving several inquiries from community members, we would like to clarify that our COVID-19 pre-registration survey for the COVID-19 vaccine does not ask for date of birth but does ask for age. However, subscribing to this COVID-19 vaccine email update will ask for a birth date, not the year. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
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, here is where we were yesterday (today's clinic information was not available yet):
The number of vaccine doses available this week: 755 doses
Total number of vaccine doses received: 1,533 doses
Total number of vaccine doses administered: 758 doses
As of today, we have reached out to individuals that submitted surveys before noon on 1/6/2021.
We want to remind residents that this process will take months and due to vaccine supplies, not everyone who is eligible will be able to receive a vaccine right away. Here is the timeline from the MDHHS.
