LANSING, MICHIGAN - Beginning April 27, Mclaren Greater Lansing will be partnering with the Ingham County Health Department to assist in supporting Michigan State University's pavilion COVID-19 clinic. The MSU pavilion is anticipated to administer 3000-4000 doses per day, increasing from the current average of 1400 doses per day.
"We are tremendously grateful to McLaren Greater Lansing," said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. "We will be running at full capacity over the next month, working as hard as we can to meet our vaccination goals, but the demand for staffing is a challenge. ICHD has been working toward common goals with McLaren Greater Lansing over the past year, but now we will be united in operations. I am humbled by their generosity and dedication to our community."
Mclaren Greater Lansing's support allows the Ingham County Health Department to boost outreach and increase equity by providing community clinics, mobile clinics, strike teams, and pop-up events. Anyone who currently resides in Michigan and is 16 or older is eligible to get vaccinated for COVID-19 with the ICHD. No appointments are needed at the MSU Pavillion all week, 9 am to 2:30 pm.
"We are proud to partner with the Ingham County Health Department and Michigan State University to ensure timely vaccination distribution to our community and ensure every person who wants a vaccine has access to one," said Kirk Ray, President and Chief Executive Officer at McLaren Greater Lansing.
