COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Mayor Maureen Miller Brosnan
I wanted to share with you some information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine distribution. At this time, the City of Livonia does not have access to any vaccine doses, though we are trying hard to change that.
Vaccines are distributed to the individual states, and then the state distributes them to the various health departments. The City of Livonia is under the Wayne County Health Department, as are all Wayne County cities (except Detroit, which has its own health department). At this time, Wayne County is only vaccinating first responders and teachers. Teachers are being scheduled through their school district.
Residents over age 65 should contact your hospital system online to learn if and when you can receive your vaccination. Your hospital will contact you directly to schedule a time for your shot. Ask someone you trust to help you find the right hospital. Health care providers are registering appointments based on a random contact/email basis, meaning you have to wait until they contact you before you can set up an appointment.

We are just as frustrated as many of our residents are with the delays in delivering vaccines in Wayne County. My team is working diligently and tirelessly to be permitted to receive the vaccines and have Livonia Firefighters administer them, which we are fully prepared to handle. We will keep our residents updated as best we can.
We appreciate your patience and value your health. We’ll get through this together and assure you that we will not rest until all our residents interested in receiving a vaccine receive one.
