By | March 23, 2021

Reservations begin Thursday March 24th 

VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft Community College
18600 Haggerty Road, Livonia
10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Friday March 26th and Thursday, April 1st
Residents from the City of Northville and Northville Township ages 50 and older are eligible to book an appointment online or by phone, beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 24.
Visit VaccinateNorthville.com for online registration from 8 a.m., March 24 until appointments are full (access is 24/7). Residents must create an account or use an existing one with Northville Parks and Recreation registration software to schedule an appointment. The website has instructions for how to set up an account.
Call 248-305-2581 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on March 24 (primarily for those without Internet access.) The call center will continue to stay open during those hours on subsequent days until all appointments are filled. This dedicated COVID-19 vaccination hotline is for assistance in both scheduling and creating an account. Please do not call other Northville administrative departments (Township or City) as they are unable to access the COVID appointment registration software.
For the second dose, a return appointment will be scheduled by the Wayne County team at Schoolcraft upon receiving the first shot.
“Getting a vaccine site close to our residents has been a top priority for both Northville Township and the City of Northville,” said Todd L. Mutchler, Northville Township manager and Public Safety director. “We are working to secure more doses (for additional clinic times).”
The appointments are intended to regulate the flow of guests. Wayne County is using the VisTaTech Center as a clinic for other communities as well, so delays may occur. Dress appropriately for the weather as the waiting area is outdoors on sidewalks. Please arrive five minutes early. Wear a mask to your appointment and clothing that makes it easy to expose your arm for the shot.
Residents will receive the Moderna vaccine on March 26. The April 1 vaccine manufacturer will be determined at a later date. Wayne County Health Department staff will complete the inoculation.
Township Supervisor Abbo said. “Many of our residents have been patiently waiting for the vaccine, and we are excited to help them. Hopefully, our partnership with the county and the city will bring us one step closer to normalcy.”
“We know how badly you want to hug your kids and grandkids again soon,” said Northville Mayor Turnbull. “Thank you for your continued patience as we work hard to do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19 with this clinic.”
Nationally and locally, the demand for the vaccine exceeds the supply. The American Community Survey of the U.S. Census indicates about 6,000 seniors ages 65 and older live in Northville Township or the City of Northville, while less than 9,000 are between the ages of 50-59. With thousands of people trying to get an appointment, some will have difficulty getting one at this time.
Residents may visit VaccinateNorthville.com and the Township Facebook page @TwpNorthville for updates. News about the clinic will also appear on the City of Northville website.
