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 who self-identify they are immunocompromised should receive a 3rd dose vaccination of Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine at least 28 days after completing their mRNA primary series.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available only by appointment through OHS.  

Employees seeking their COVID vaccination through OHS must have their UMID and should bring their vaccination card if coming for a second, third or booster dose.  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. This will ensure Occupational Health Services and ResponsiBLUE are updated accordingly.

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.   

Employees who received a booster vaccine at OHS, Ford Auditorium or submitted a booster vaccination proof to OHS prior to 1/5/2022 do not need to upload their booster vaccine information into Wolverine Access. Employees receiving a vaccine from OHS at Ford Auditorium on or after 1/5/2022 will need to submit booster proof through Wolverine Access.
