Aspirus offering COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Laurium Vaccinations available for teens age 16-17

Aspirus Health is offering a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Friday, April 16 from 3-6 p.m., at Aspirus Laurium Clinic, 205 Osceola Street.

The clinic will offer the Pfizer vaccine, the only COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in teens age 16 and 17.    

“Now that everyone 16 and up is eligible to receive the vaccine in Michigan, this clinic is a great opportunity for teenagers who are not eligible for other COVID-19 vaccines to get access,” said Kathy Bowman, Director of Clinics for Aspirus. “We re excited to be able to offer the vaccine to this age group and our student- athletes.”

Vaccinations through the clinic are available by appointment only and will be limited to about 70 people.

To register, individuals can call the clinic at 906-337-5313 during business hours. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have parental consent and have a parent present at the time of vaccination.

Aspirus urges everyone to sign up through any available vaccinator if they have yet to be vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing illness and the most severe symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Those who live in Aspirus’ service area in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula can request the COVID-19 vaccine through Aspirus at any time by going online to aspirus.org/vaccine or through the MyAspirus patient portal. Appointments are offered based on vaccine supply and availability may vary by location.

To date, Aspirus has provided more than 42,000 first- and second-dose vaccinations to eligible community members.
