Saginaw County Residents Age 65+ Can Reserve Vaccine Through County Health Department

Beginning Monday, January 11, Saginaw County residents who are 65 years of age and older are eligible to reserve a COVID-19 vaccine dose.  Currently, Saginaw County is still vaccinating health care workers and long-term care residents in Phase 1A, with the hopes to begin 1B as soon as doses are available.

If you are 65 years of age or older, here’s what you can do NOW to RESERVE YOUR DOSE:

Register your name, age, address, cell phone, and email address with the Saginaw County Health Department at This link is available at

  • Friends and family may register on behalf of a loved one who is not comfortable with technology – and may use their own email or cell phone number for notifications.
  • Those who are unable to register online or don’t have a family member to assist may call the Saginaw County Commission on Aging for help! Just call (989) 797-6880. Staff will take your name, address, cell phone, and email address and enter you into the health department’s system to reserve your dose.

Once you are registered and doses become available, the health department will notify you via email and/or text for the day, time and location where you can go to receive your vaccination. Providers in Saginaw County are working together on this large and complex initiative, so you may be directed to one of our hospitals, a partner clinic, or a Saginaw County Health Department drive-thru vaccination clinic near you.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work with limited doses.Meanwhile, please continue to wash your hands, wear your mask, watch your distance, and avoid large indoor gatherings.
