The Kent County Health Department shared your contact information as an unaffiliated healthcare worker/department interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We are partnering with the Kent County Health Department to vaccinate healthcare workers in Kent County and want to offer you/your team of healthcare workers the opportunity to obtain your vaccine at one of our vaccine clinics.
Please disregard if you have already received this message or obtained your vaccine elsewhere.
Please use the following links to schedule your FIRST vaccine dose*:
- Eerdman Parking Garage (map and directions below)- click HERE
- Lacks Grand Conference Room (lower level of Lacks Cancer Center, 250 Cherry St.)- click HERE
*Please note there are three schedules for each day to provide enough appointment times.
Staff will need an active Trinity Health MyChart account. To activate your MyChart account, please CLICK HERE
A few important reminders and clarifications:
- We are offering both drive-through in the Eerdman Garage and on-site vaccination (Lacks Grand) options. Entry to the Eerdman garage is off Jefferson across the Main Hospital, from Lot 5 and exiting onto La Grave street.
- Only your first dose needs to be scheduled; the second vaccine dose required for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be scheduled at the time you receive your first.
- As our capability and approach is rapidly evolving, we are only opening up the schedule for vaccination 7 days in advance.
- Underlying medical conditions and being immunocompromised are NOT reasons to not obtain the vaccine
Additional vaccine considerations:
- We recommend that you receive the vaccine on the last day of your work stretch (i.e. do not have to work the next day or two).
- Side effects (such as injection site pain, headache, fever, chills, muscle aches) are relatively common; they are typically mild and last less than 24 hours. More information will be available at the time of vaccine administration.
- Educational materials are available to download and may help to answer your questions.
- It is recommended that colleagues who are pregnant/breastfeeding have a discussion about the risks/benefits of receiving the vaccine with their healthcare provider.
- As we continue to roll out the vaccination plan to other groups in the community per the CDC guidelines, please schedule your vaccine as soon as you are able to ensure a time and date that works best for you.
