Family Health Center COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic offering booster doses and 1st or 2nd shots in Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO, MI – People can walk in, or call ahead for an appointment, to get a COVID-19 vaccine at a drive-thru clinic in Kalamazoo.

The Family Health Center (FHC) will be hosting a drive-in clinic to administer COVID-19 vaccines on Tuesday, November 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kalamazoo Central High School, 2432 N. Drake Road.

FHC will provide the Pfizer-BioNTech Booster Shot to all who are eligible – people who have been fully vaccinated for at least six months and are 65 years of age or older, 50-64 with underlying medical conditions, or 18 years and older who live in long-term care settings or work in high-risk settings, FHC said in a press release.

Those who are eligible can receive the booster regardless of the vaccine they originally received, according to an FHC press release.

For those who are not fully vaccinated, FHC will also provide the first or second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine as needed to anyone age 12 and older.

Appointments are available by calling the FHC COVID-19 hotline at 269-488-0804. Passers-by will also be welcome.
