COVID-19 Vaccine Information and Update

Page updated August 2, 2021

About the University of Michigan Vaccine Requirement

The University of Michigan announced on July 30 it is requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all U-M students, faculty and staff, including Michigan Medicine, by the start of the fall term on August 30.

The more infectious Delta variant of COVID-19, the possibility of breakthrough infections, and our inability to vaccinate the young children of students and employees and those with compromised immunity have made it necessary to strengthen our approach to keeping our community safe.

Visit the press release on the University Record website for more details and the complete announcement.

For Michigan Medicine employees, visit the Required COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs on the Michigan Medicine Headlines website for more information.

Scheduling a Vaccination Appointment

Who: Anyone with a Michigan Medicine medical record number (MRN). If you are not an established Michigan Medicine patient, please call 734-936-4990 to set up an MRN before calling to schedule your appointment.

How: Appointments can be scheduled online through the MyUofMHealth patient portal. If you do not have a portal account you can schedule an appointment by calling the COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling Call Center at 734-763-6336 (select option 1, then option 2 to speak with an agent) 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Second Dose Appointments Available

Who: Those who received their first doses elsewhere, as long as proof of initial vaccines can be provided.

How: Call the COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling Call Center at 734-763-6336 (select option 1, then option 2) 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Vaccine clinics will not be able to offer “second dose only” vaccines until documentation of an initial vaccine has been recorded in your medical record and a second dose appointment request has been issued by the Call Center. “Second dose only” requests will be accommodated in as timely a manner as possible. We continue to encourage those seeking second doses to pursue other options as well, including contacting local pharmacies. See our Finding Vaccines page for tips on how to find a vaccine appointment in your area.

Vaccinations for Adolescents and Children

Who: The FDA has expanded emergency use authorization for individuals as young as 12 years old to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

How: Visit our COVID-19 Vaccines for Adolescents & Children page to learn more.

If You Have Been Vaccinated Elsewhere

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. For complete details on how to find the questionnaire, see our Finding Vaccines page under "How to Let Us Know if You Have Been Vaccinated Elsewhere".

Vaccine Clinic Locations

Our U-M North Campus Research Complex clinic is offering appointments for the Pfizer vaccine, and our Brighton Health Center vaccine clinic is offering appointments for the Moderna vaccine. We are also offering vaccine appointments at our Northville location. See the Your Vaccination Appointment page for maps and other details specific to these locations.
