MCHD vaccination pre-registration updated for groups that will become eligible under expansion

MARQUETTE — The Marquette County Health Department has provided pre-registration details regarding the new COVID-19 vaccination prioritization.

As of Monday, eligibility will be expanded to include residents age 50 and over with medical conditions or disabilities as well as family members who care for children with special health care needs.

Eligibility will expand again to include all residents age 50 and over on March 22.

The MCHD will begin accepting pre-registration for these two groups at 10 a.m. Friday. It is developing a new registration form that includes information about medical conditions. Anyone age 50 and over or those caring for a child with special health care needs may pre-register using a link to be posted at mqthealth.org. The health department will use this information to contact people.

Anyone needing assistance may call 906-475-7847. Phone lines are staffed between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Once vaccine allotment is determined, MCHD staff will begin calling people from the pre-registration list to schedule an appointment for a vaccine. These calls will take place on Monday and Tuesday for appointments next week.
