COVID 19 Vaccine- 04/06/2021
We will be receiving the Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine this week and plan to offer a drive-through clinic to all Thirlby Clinic patients 16+ this Saturday, April 10th. If you are interested in receiving the vaccine please sign up via our “vaccine clinic signup” button on the website or contact our office via phone. The Pfizer vaccine is a 2-dose series and will require you to come back for your second dose on Saturday, May 1st. Thank you!
COVID 19 Vaccine- 03/20/2021
We received COVID 19 vaccine directly from the state this week. We have clinics planned for this weekend and the coming week (03/22-03/25). If you are 50+ and a patient of Thirlby Clinic please visit our website and send a request to sign up via our “vaccine clinic signup” button on our home page. One of our staff members will reach out to you if we still have vaccine available. You can also contact the office directly to inquire about vaccine availability.
COVID 19 Vaccine- 03/03/2021
We have continued to work in collaboration with Munson Medical Center (MMC) and have been receiving small weekly shipments. We will begin having an option to sign up online starting on Thursdays. We will have the online option open until we have enough patients to fill a clinic. If you do not receive a call with an appointment date and time after signing up online, you should continue to visit the site on Thursdays.
We continue to encourage patients to seek the vaccine wherever possible including local chain pharmacies and local health departments.
COVID 19 Vaccine- 02/18/2021
We are working in collaboration with Munson Medical Center (MMC) to trial giving COVID 19 vaccines at outpatient clinics. We will be receiving very limited supplies of the vaccine. We are currently reaching out to our eldest patients to ensure they get the vaccine. We will continue to update you and when registration at our clinic opens for those over 65, we will make you aware.
There are several local chain pharmacies that have been receiving vaccines or plan to receive vaccines in the near future. Those pharmacies include Meijer, Walgreens and Rite Aid. We encourage you to visit their websites and put your name in for the vaccine when it becomes available. They will contact you when they have availability.
The Grand Traverse County Health Department opens their scheduling for the week’s vaccine allocations on Mondays at 1pm. Please visit their website at that time to get signed up.
Thank you for your continued patience. We are encouraged by the trial with MMC and are hopeful to gain more access to vaccine in the near future.
COVID 19 Vaccine- 02/02/2021
Munson Healthcare anticipates receiving fewer first doses of the COVID vaccine in the coming weeks, with the change in vaccine allocation as set forward by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Because of this, they are currently not scheduling any additional first dose clinics for patients in the community.
We encourage those who are 65 years and older to continue to visit their local health department's website for information on signing up to receive the vaccine. Thirlby Clinic does not have the COVID vaccine at this time. Thank you for your continued patience.
