COVID List Expands (Age 60 with Health Conditions)

City adds residents 60 or older with health conditions to eligibility list for COVID-19 vaccines

Detroit residents who are 60 or older with chronic health conditions are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations at the TCF Center. The expanded eligibility list was announced by Mayor Mike Duggan at a Feb. 17 news briefing.

Those individuals can call (313) 230-0505 and get an appointment as early as this week.  When arriving for the appointment at TCF Center, patients will be asked to show evidence of their condition, such as a health provider note, insurance record, prescription bottle or any other document that verifies their condition.

Examples of underlying conditions, which make an individual more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, include:  Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, cancer (current/in remission), cardiomyopathy, cerebrovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, COPD, coronary artery disease, Cystic Fibrosis, dementia, diabetes, HIV, heart conditions, hypertension, liver disease, pulmonary fibrosis and sickle cell.

The announcement is the latest move by the City of Detroit to reach its most vulnerable populations. Last week, the Mayor opened eligibility to residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their live-in caregivers and announced Senior Saturdays, a series of weekend vaccination events for Detroiters age 65 or older, at two area churches.

He also announced a program to provide $2 rides to the TCF Center for Detroit residents without their own transportation.  That program includes wheelchair accessible vehicles for individuals with physical disabilities.

Scheduling Appointments

Eligible residents can call (313) 230-0505 between 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Friday to make an appointment. Vaccinations will be administered by appointment only.
