Michigan Medicine will continue issuing invitations to schedule vaccine appointments to our eligible patients in waves as quickly as the state’s allocation to us allows. You do not need to request an invitation. We will contact you directly when we are able to offer you a vaccine appointment. Learn more about our vaccine invitation and appointment scheduling process.
Vaccine Tools and Location Options
The best way to get vaccinated as soon as possible is to explore additional opportunities to be vaccinated through vaccine finder search tools, mass vaccination clinics, pharmacies, and local health departments. See the list below for options in each of these categories.

How to Let Us Know If You Have Been Vaccinated Elsewhere
We encourage you to be vaccinated wherever you are given the first opportunity.
If you are a Michigan Medicine patient who has been vaccinated by a non-Michigan Medicine provider, we ask that you complete a short questionnaire, available in your MyUofMHealth patient portal account, to let us know. This is especially important for patients who were vaccinated through the VA or by out-of-state providers and helps ensure your vaccination records are up-to-date.
How to find the questionnaire: When you log into your account, a notification to “Report COVID-19 Vaccination Status” will pop up on your home screen. Choose the “Questionnaire” button to fill out a brief survey to let us know of your vaccination.
If you dismissed the notification previously but now wish to update your status, follow the directions below:
- Log into your MyUofMHealth patient portal account.
- Click on the "Menu" button at the top of the screen.
- Select “Questionnaires” from the drop-down menu.
- Select “Report COVID-19 Vaccinations” and complete the questionnaire.
If you are not a MyUofMHealth patient portal user, please bring your vaccine documentation to your next appointment so we can update your medical records to reflect your vaccination.
About the State of Michigan Vaccine Database
If you were vaccinated in the State of Michigan (excluding the VA), your vaccination record will be entered into a statewide database (MCIR) that securely connects with our electronic medical record system. If your medical record shows that you have been vaccinated through another provider in the State of Michigan, you will not receive an invitation to be vaccinated at Michigan Medicine. This helps us move on to offer other patients vaccination once we have the reassurance that you have already received your immunization.
If you were vaccinated by Veterans Affairs (the VA) or an out-of-state provider, your vaccine will not be registered into the statewide database.
