Questions and Answers About Scheduling a COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment

How can I schedule a vaccination appointment at Michigan Medicine?

Michigan Medicine Patients: All Michigan Medicine patients who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can now schedule vaccine appointments through Michigan Medicine.

You can schedule your appointment online through the MyUofMHealth patient portal. Patients who are not registered portal users can call 734-763-6336.

Non- Michigan Medicine Patients: Individuals who are not current Michigan Medicine patients must establish a Michigan Medicine medical record number (MRN) in order to schedule an appointment. Call our patient registration team at 734-936-4990 to set up an MRN.

How do I schedule a vaccination appointment using the MyUofMHealth patient portal?

Log in to the MyUofMHealth patient portal, find the appointment scheduling message on your home page, click the blue "Schedule Now" button, and then follow the steps to choose a location, date and time for your appointment.

For a detailed guide to scheduling your appointment that includes screenshots of the patient portal, view or download the Scheduling Your COVID-19 Vaccine PDF.

Can I get my vaccination somewhere else?

The State of Michigan’s vaccination distribution strategy is to offer broader access to vaccination through health departments and pharmacies. We strongly encourage our patients to explore additional opportunities to be vaccinated through their local health department and pharmacies in their area, and take the first appointment to be vaccinated that they are offered.

Visit our Finding Vaccines in Your Area page for more tips and resources for getting vaccinated.

If you receive a vaccine from another provider 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 Michigan provider, 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 receive your vaccination from a provider outside of Michigan, or from the VA, please see the section "If You Have Been Vaccinated Elsewhere" section at the bottom of the Finding Vaccines in Your Area page for instructions on how to notify your Michigan Medicine provider that you have been vaccinated.

Do I need to get both doses at the same place?

You do not need to receive both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from the same provider.

If you receive the first dose of the vaccine from Michigan Medicine, please provide documentation of having received your second dose by following the instructions from our Finding Vaccines in Your Area page on how to notify your Michigan Medicine provider of your vaccination.

Can I choose which vaccine I'd like to receive?

Michigan Medicine receives vaccine supply from different manufacturers as allocated by the State of Michigan. While you won’t be able to request a specific vaccine, you may schedule your appointment at a clinic where your preferred vaccine is being administered. To learn which vaccines will be administered at a specific vaccine clinic, see the information at the top of our Vaccine Information and Update page. Please note that locations where specific vaccines are administered may change based on vaccine supply and current operations.
