We unfortunately have not received enough supply to immediately offer the COVID-19 vaccine to all patients currently eligible according to the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS). We are currently vaccinating all active patients over the age of 65, active patients between age 50 and 64 with preexisting medical conditions and those over the age of 16 who are caregivers of individuals with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities. Once we have offered the opportunity to schedule the COVID-19 vaccine to all patients in the above groups, we will begin inviting all active patients age 18 to 64 to schedule. Please know that if you are an IHA or St. Joe's Medical Group patient and you receive your COVID-19 vaccine at an outside location, we will receive your vaccination information through our data-sharing relationship with the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR). We are using this data to continue to prioritize contacting our patients who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, so if you receive your vaccine elsewhere you may not be contacted by IHA or St. Joe's Medical Group about the vaccine. If you are an IHA or St. Joe's Medical Group patient who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine according to MDHHS and you have the opportunity to schedule your vaccine elsewhere, we encourage you to do so.
We are contacting eligible IHA & St. Joe’s Medical Group patients on the MyChart Patient Portal in waves to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine appointments. We are first contacting eligible primary care patients, followed by specialty patients. Patients without MyChart will be contacted by phone. We encourage you to sign up for MyChart as it will be the quickest way to schedule your vaccine once you have been contacted to do so. Thank you for your patience!
An FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine designed to prevent the COVID-19 virus is the best hope for ending the pandemic. We know there are still many questions and concerns regarding these vaccines. That's why IHA and St. Joe's Medical Group remain committed to keeping you and our communities informed and educated as major developments occur.
In order to have your best chance at scheduling the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to sign up & activate your Trinity Health MyChart account as soon as possible.Sign up for MyChart
