COVID-19 Vaccine Availability Expanded for Detroit
The Detroit mayor announced eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine has been expanded to any person 18+ living or working in the City of Detroit whose job requires them to work from their job site.
Eligible employees are now able to call (313) 230-0505 Monday through Friday from 9 AM – 6 PM to schedule an appointment. Nothing else will be required to secure their vaccine. However, employees will need to confirm:
- employer name
- that they must be onsite (vs. remote) to work right now
- bring a state-issued ID
- bring a work ID badge / business card / paystub / letter on company letterhead with their individual name to their actual appointment
If there is a group of employees who have expressed interest in receiving the vaccine, they may be eligible for an onsite clinic supported by the City Health Department.

POST: Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program Expands Reach Thanks to Michigan Nonprofit
March is reading month and children across Michigan have access to free books thanks to a partnership between a local nonprofit and Dolly Parton. Yes, Dolly Parton. If there is one thing that most people can agree on is their mutual love for Dolly. Am I right?
Michigan Nonprofit Association member Communities In Schools Michigan (CIS) and the Lansing Housing Commission (LHC) collaborated with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to get books into the hands of children in mid-Michigan. “The earlier children learn to read, the more ready for kindergarten they will be,” said Meg McElhone, Director of Resource Development and Implementation, Communities In Schools. “One of the things Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library encourages is that parents read to their kids for at least 15 minutes every day. This encourages a love of reading in children that we hope lasts a lifetime.”
