Berrien County Health Department postponing Benton Harbor office COVID-19 vaccine appointments
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – The Berrien County Health Department announced on Monday appointments made for COVD-19 vaccinations at the department’s Benton Harbor office for Tuesday have been postponed for March 1st.
The department stated the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services made officials aware vaccine shipments to the department have been delayed due to the winter storm.
There are limited options available for alternative appointments if March 1st is not possible, but the department urges clients to come for their 2nd doses on that date.
The department says vaccine appointments scheduled at senior centers on Wednesday and Thursday this week are not impacted, but if there are unforeseen impacts to upcoming clinics the department will notify clients to reschedule.
“No one should worry that they will not be guaranteed their second dose of the vaccine due to this clinic postponement,” said Berrien County Health Officer, Nicki Britten. “Vaccine doses are secure for those who had an appointment, albeit slightly delayed by unfortunate winter storms experienced by much of the county within the last week.”
