Do you Want to Host a Vaccine Clinic at your Greenhouse?
The Michigan Primary Care Association has developed a centralized web form for collecting vaccine event interest for food processing and agricultural workers across the state of Michigan.
Intent of Form: This form is for employers, housing providers, and other organizational stakeholders to indicate their interest in hosting a COVID-19 vaccine event for agricultural workers.
This absolutely includes greenhouses and may be particularly helpful for those who employ H-2A workers.
After submission, the information will be sent to the community health center serving the request area and the health center will follow-up to discuss additional details.
Individual agricultural workers who would like a COVID-19 vaccine are not intended to complete this event request form. Instead, please visit Michigan.gov/COVIDVaccine or vaccinefinder.org to find a vaccine provider in your area.
Generally, a health center will make arrangements to provide on-site COVID-19 vaccine administration if there are 30 or more agricultural workers at the requesting location. If there are fewer than 30, the health center may serve the agricultural workers from the requesting location at a nearby health center site or another upcoming vaccine event in the area. If unsure, submit the interest form with your best available information.
Health centers will try to follow-up within 2 days of receiving your information, but may take up to 5 days, depending on the number of requests. We appreciate your patience and support in reaching this essential workforce with the vaccine.
