MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - “The time is NOW!” says the Marquette County Health Department (MCHD) in relation to getting a coronavirus vaccine.

“Vaccine supply in Michigan has reached the point where we can now offer vaccinations to any individual 16 years of age and older beginning Monday, April 5,” MCHD said.

One fact, the health department said, that many may not know, is that unless you have symptoms, you don’t need to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and are exposed to a sick friend or family member. This is one way COVID-19 vaccination can remove some restrictions in your life.

As of March 31, 20.7% of the eligible population in Michigan is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Statewide, 34.5% of Michigan’s population has received at least one dose. In Marquette County, 26.9% of eligible people are fully vaccinated as of the end of March. Learn more about current vaccination rates here.

“Increasing vaccination rates and moving closer to herd immunity will improve our chances of removing mask mandates,” MCHD said. “Let’s all get vaccinated, end this pandemic response and get back to the enjoying life without restriction.”

Vaccine registration is available to any citizen 16 years of age and older. Those interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination can now register through the link provided at www.mqthealth.org.
