COVID-19 Vaccine Information Center


COVID-19 vaccine information center

We are committed to health equity and enabling everyone—no matter what their race, ethnicity or economic status—to receive the vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine will help to protect you, your loved ones, and the community. Once it is available to you, we recommend receiving the vaccine so we can start to move past the pandemic to better health. For more information about vaccines visit our frequently asked questions page.

Ready to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment?

All individuals 16 years and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination in the State of Michigan. However, because of the current vaccine supply available at Spectrum Health Lakeland we are only scheduling for those 18 years and older at this time. Individuals age 16 and 17 are encouraged to contact the Berrien County Health Department or other area pharmacies for additional scheduling options.

Use the scheduling tool below to select an available appointment. Continue to check back as new appointment times will continue to be added as they become available. For available appointments at the Berrien County Health Department, click here.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no out-of-pocket cost. Insurance is not required to register for an appointment. If you have insurance, please include that information when scheduling. All clinic appointments shown below are for those needing a first dose vaccine. For information about second doses, see below.

For your safety, if you fit into any of the categories below, please call 269.927.5100 to schedule/discuss your vaccine appointment:

  • Have received any other vaccine in the last 14 days (including flu or shingles vaccine).
  • Received passive antibody therapy as treatment for COVID-19 in the last 90 days.
  • Are currently in self-isolation for COVID-19 (10 days of self-isolation are required after symptoms).

When will I get a second dose?

A second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine is necessary to further boost the immune response and ensure long-term protection from COVID-19. We are committed to providing a second dose to everyone who receives a first dose. Community members will be scheduled for a second dose following their first dose appointment. 

NOTE: Second doses are allotted by the state based on first doses administered. It is important that you receive your second dose from the same provider who gave you the first dose and that you do not miss your scheduled appointment to ensure you are able to receive the vaccine within the recommended time.

If you received your first dose at Spectrum Health Lakeland and have questions about your appointment, please call 269.927.5100. If you did not receive your first dose of vaccine from Spectrum Health Lakeland and need a second dose, please complete this survey.

Be part of something big.

It's a big decision to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Community members across Southwest Michigan are sharing why they chose to protect themselves and help stop the spread of COVID-19. Hear more in the videos below.
