Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan announced Wednesday (Feb. 17) that Detroit is now giving COVID vaccination eligibility to all residents 60 and older who suffer from chronic medical conditions.
“Detroit is committed to making vaccines available to all our most vulnerable residents,” Duggan said in a statement. “People with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or other chronic conditions have death rates from COVID far greater than the general population.”
The vaccine is now open residents 60 and older with one of the following underlying health conditions:
Cancer (current & in remission)
Sickle cell disease
Chronic kidney disease
Type 1 or 2 diabetes
Coronary artery disease
Detroiters can 313-230-0505 to make an appointment to get vaccinated at the TCF Center. Rides to and from the venue are also available for $2. Those who make an appointment will be required to show evidence of their condition upon arrival at the TCF Center.
