MDHHS COVID-19 Vaccine information

MDHHS has prepared a COVID-19 Vaccine webpage for providers. It is the ‘COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Guidance and Education Resources’. Another way to access this site is directly from the Department's COVID-19 vaccine webpage www.michigan.gov/COVIDvaccine, then selecting “Provider Guidance and Education”.
