Beaumont Health adds more walk-in vaccine clinics: May 3-7
Beaumont Health is providing five additional walk-in clinic days to make it easier for people to get vaccinated. Anyone age 16 and up is invited to get vaccinated during any of the walk-in clinic hours.
We asked, and you shared
We asked employees to share with us what you’re going through and what you want the community to know so that we can get through this surge and end the pandemic together. Today’s response comes from Maryanne Kenerson, RN, a professional development support generalist:
As a semi-retired nurse, I am not on the front lines, but I admire the professionals who have daily contact with sick COVID-19 patients. I have volunteered in the vaccine clinic doing observation and noticed that the people coming through after getting their immunization are very happy and grateful. I also have done some volunteer contract tracing for the State of Michigan health department, which is hopefully helping to get people information on properly quarantining.

People need to be more cautious, they need to be sure they’re wearing their masks, practicing their social distancing, staying home if they’re sick, and getting vaccinated.,” Dr. Nick Gilpin, medical director of Infection Prevention and Epidemiology for Beaumont Health, told the Washington post.
