Aspirus offering COVID-19 vaccine clinics in Ontonagon
Vaccinations also available for teens age 16-17
ONTONAGON – Aspirus Health is offering COVID-19 vaccinations daily at Aspirus Ontonagon Clinic, 601 S. 7th Street, Ontonagon, MI 49953.
The clinics offer the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is the only COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in teens age 16 and 17.
“These clinics are a great opportunity for individuals and teens who would like the COVID-19 vaccine to get access,” said Erin Hinton, Manager of Clinics for Aspirus. “We are excited to offer the vaccine to our community.”
Vaccinations through the clinic are available by appointment only and will be limited to about 20 people daily, Monday through Friday.
To register, individuals can call the clinic at 906-884-8000 during business hours and select option #1. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have parental consent and have a parent present at the time of vaccination.
Aspirus urges everyone to sign up through any available vaccinator if they have yet to be vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing illness and the most severe symptoms associated with COVID-19. They also provide added protection against variant strains of COVID-19 which are on the rise.
Those who live in Aspirus’ service area in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula can directly schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments through the MyAspirus patient portal or app. Appointment requests can also be made without a MyAspirus account by going online to aspirus.org/vaccine or by calling the Aspirus COVID-19 Call Center at 1-844-568-0701 or 715-843-1454.
