COVID-19 Vaccination

Scheduling a COVID-19 Vaccine at OHS

Michigan Medicine employees can schedule a Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccination in the following scenarios: 

  1. Michigan Medicine employees seeking their 1st dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. Michigan Medicine employees seeking their 2nd dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine 21 days after completing their 1st dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. Michigan Medicine employees seeking a booster after completing their Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series at least 5 months ago or a single-dose of Janssen (J&J) vaccine at least 2 months ago.
  4. Michigan Medicine employees age 50 and older seeking a 4th dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months after their initial booster.
  5. Michigan Medicine employees who self-identify that they are immunocompromised should receive a 3rd dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after completing their 2 dose mRNA primary series. They may receive a booster (4th dose) at least 3 months after completing their 3rd dose and a 5th dose at least 4 months after their initial booster.
  6. Michigan Medicine employees who received the J&J vaccine as their primary vaccine and booster dose may receive a Pfizer-BioNTech booster at least 4 months after their booster.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available only by appointment through OHS, please schedule an appointment, here.

Employees seeking their COVID vaccination through OHS must have their UMID and should bring their vaccination card if coming for second, third, or any subsequent vaccine doses.  Once vaccinated, a 15-30-minute observation period will occur.  Employees should plan their visit accordingly. 

Submitting COVID-19 Primary Series and Booster Vaccination Proof

Employees should report all COVID-19 vaccines through the Wolverine Access survey tool, except for the 2nd booster (or 4th or 5th dose).  Please DO NOT record a 2nd dose in Wolverine Access or through the ResponsiBLUE survey tool.  OHS does not required the 2nd booster to be submitted at this time. 

Instructions on how to upload COVID-19 vaccination information through Wolverine Access and accessing the MyChart patient portal (for those employees active on the patient portal) can be found by visiting the Michigan Medicine COVID-19 Vaccination Reporting Policy and viewing the attachment titled Retrieval of Vaccination Information From MyChart and Upload to Wolverine Access.
