DETROIT, April 19, 2021 ~ Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said the numbers of positive COVID-19 cases are beginning to lessen, as he revealed plans to open vaccination sites in Detroit that do not require appointments.
“This is our role as a city; give you the best information we can and make the vaccine as available as possible and at as many locations as easily as possible,” Duggan said Monday in a statement. “I’m really hopeful in the coming weeks we will continue to see the new cases dropping as they have been recently.”
According to reports, the city was recording nearly 500 additional cases per day. However, in the last 10 days the number has dropped to around 300 new cases daily, according to reports.
Beginning Tuesday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Michigan residents may go to the TCF Center, Farwell Recreation Center, and Northwest Activities Center or Samaritan Center, with no appointment required to get a vaccine.
Residents also will have the option of making an appointment or walking up for a vaccine Monday at Henry Ford High School or Western International High School, on Wednesday at Brenda Scott Academy or Friday at the East English Village Preparatory Academy.
Additionally, walk-up vaccines will be available Saturday, at Fellowship Chapel, Second Ebenezer and Greater Grace.
