This is to make you aware that as a frontline child welfare professional, you may now use this link to connect with your local health department to schedule your COVID 19 vaccination: https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98178_103214_104822—,00.html#comp_121341. Please complete the information requested and inform them of your status as a child welfare field staff. The attached verification form should be used if necessary.
Per the prioritization guidance at the following link: https://www.michigan.gov/documents/coronavirus/MI_COVID-19_Vaccination_Prioritization_Guidance_710349_7, child welfare field staff qualify for Phase 1B and are eligible to receive the vaccine as supplies are available. Vaccine supplies, processes for obtaining the vaccine, locations, and timeframes for scheduling appointments are divergent across the state. Your local health department will provide you with further direction about scheduling and receiving your vaccine.
Lastly, while vaccination is not required, MDHHS strongly encourages all eligible child welfare field staff to consider receiving the vaccine to promote the continued health and safety of staff, their families, and the children and families being served.
