COVID-19 Vaccination

On September 11, 2023, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved and authorized updated COVID-19 vaccines. At this time, Occupational Health Services is not administering any COVID-19 vaccines to employees. Employees should monitor their email for communications from Michigan Medicine and the OHS website regarding when the updated vaccine will be available at OHS. In the meantime, employees can obtain the COVID-19 vaccine from their own healthcare provider or from a community resource and at this time, do not need to submit documentation to OHS.
