MARQUETTE, Mich – If you are still looking to get vaccinated, there’s a new clinic location.
After administering 35,000 vaccines at the Northern Center, the Marquette County Health Department is moving their vaccination clinic back to their headquarters.
“The Northern Center was really set up for high volume. We did 12 to 13 hundred people multiple days a week when the vaccine fist came out,” said Brianna Mileski, the Community Health Division Director for the MCHD. “So we are seeing less of a demand now, so it is a little bit easier for us to focus on appointments here . We are still offering all of our other services as well. So its just been a natural shift as numbers have gone down.”
Mileski also reiterated that if you are feeling ill to get tested and be cautious.
“With things opening back up, we certainly want people to remember to do the same things they were doing to prevent Covid before,” Mileski said. “We’re talking about washing your hands, monitoring yourself for symptoms, especially if you travel out of the area if you are not feeling well, don’t go to work and definitely get tested if you have Covid. Those are all going to be important things still for preventing spread in our community. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated.”
The health department will still be holding pop up clinics around the county including one this weekend at the Marquette Farmers Market where the Johnson and Johnson vaccine will be offered.
The health department is offering all three vaccines as well.
