The Wayne County Health Department has been identified as a provider for the COVID-19 vaccine. We are excited that a safe and effective vaccine has been manufactured, and look forward to providing this free vaccine to anyone who wishes to receive it. 

Beginning Monday, June 20, vaccines and testing will transition to a 3-day schedule on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
