InterCare Community Health Network is pleased to be working with the South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce and the First Congregational Church, UCC to provide a Moderna COVID-19 vaccination clinic (at the church) on 2 Saturdays: April 24 and May 22. Each event will begin at 10 am and go until 4 or 4:30 pm.
InterCare and the Chamber are hopeful that many in our community who work in the hospitality industry during the summer will avail themselves of this opportunity. All others are welcome as well.
You do not need to be a patient of InterCare to receive the vaccine, nor do you need a doctor’s order. What you will need to do is follow this link https://forms.office.com/r/GS0GqABTSF or the QR square
to get your registration started. The state requires all persons vaccinated in Michigan to be registered. You will be asked for certain demographic information and you will need your driver’s license number to complete the registration. You will also have to provide your insurance information (but, if you are uninsured you will simply enter “uninsured” in the field). Once you submit the information, you will receive a phone call from InterCare for the purpose of confirming a vaccination time for you.
On the appointed day, you’ll need to bring a form of ID and set aside at least an hour to complete your consent and receive required information, get the injection, and then be observed for 15 – 30 minutes to be sure you don’t have an allergic reaction to the vaccine. These reactions seem to occur in 2 – 11 cases per million doses, so they are rare, but InterCare has the required medication to use if needed.
Once you submit your online registration, you will receive a phone call within 24 hours to confirm your appointment time. If you do not receive a call, please call Sharon Stephens at the InterCare Call Center, 269-427-7937 extension 41011.
Remember: You must be 18 years old or older in order to receive the Moderna vaccine.
For those who aren’t comfortable with online forms or who don’t have access to the internet, a phone system is available between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.
Call the InterCare Call Center at 855-869-6900. When the connection is made, you will have to listen to a message before you will be presented with a menu of options. When the options are given, press 1 (which will be called “Bangor”) and an operator will answer. Tell the operator that you are calling to make an appointment for the vaccination clinic. If you miss the chance to enter a menu option for any reason, simply stay on the line and an operator will answer.
