COVID-19 Vaccination

Scheduling a COVID-19 Vaccine at OHS

Employees seeking a COVID-19 vaccination through OHS must have their UMID and should bring their vaccination record card if coming for second or any subsequent vaccine doses. Once vaccinated, a 15-30-minute observation period will occur. Employees should plan their visit accordingly. 

Individuals with a recent COVID-19 infection may consider delaying the booster for 3 months from the date of symptoms onset or the positive test result. However, individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as the isolation period is complete per CDC recommendations.

Individuals can receive a COVID-19 vaccine and seasonal influenza shot at the same time.

Bivalent Booster

Michigan Medicine employees seeking the updated (bivalent) Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Booster are eligible to receive it at least 2 months after completing the 2nd dose of the primary series -OR- 2 months after receiving the last booster of any FDA-approved or authorized covid vaccine.

Primary Series (1st and 2nd dose)

Michigan Medicine employees can receive the monovalent Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 primary series vaccination in the following scenarios:

  1. Michigan Medicine employees seeking the 1st dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. Michigan Medicine employees seeking the 2nd dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine 21 days after completing the 1st dose of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Employees who are seeking a 1st or 2nd dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination should call OHS at 734-764-8021 to schedule an appointment for the primary series.

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.
