Summer is approaching! Protect yourself from UV rays. Did you know that you can get too much exposure to the sun? It is important to protect your skin by applying sunscreen during prolonged exposure to the sun. It is FDA recommended to use sunscreen with at least 15SPF or higher for the best protection. In doing so, you can decrease the chance of sunburn as well as lower your risk for skin cancer.

Do you prefer an even tone and a youthful look? Sunscreen can assist with that by preventing premature aging of the skin and by preventing discoloration and dark spots from sun damage. So, protect yourself and remember to STAY HYDRATED! The SUN is out!

Will you please state the priorities for getting vaccine, are they the same as State guidelines. Called last week to clarify whether the Monday 5-6 appointment or registration was the priority list for over 65, was told registration. Web site indicates you can still make appointment on Monday 5-6, Why if people are on list and you have appointments available, first people registered should get them, regardless of Race or where they live in county. Other counties are doing much better then GCHD. I have been registered for a week, will these other groups be put ahead of me.

Just saw something disturbing on Genesee County Health Department, web site Genesee County is prioritizing Phase 1B as follows: Those aged 80 years or older, and Individuals in groups hit the hardest by COVID-19: African Americans, Hispanics, and Flint residents What happened to over 65???? Is it a local thing, because I can't find it in the Michigan site. Legal?? What about the rest of the county? MICHIGAN.GOV www.michigan.gov
The Genesee County Health Department, hasn't posted an update lately, Is the Health Dept using strictly the new sign up register or are they still going to have that Monday 5-6 appointment, which isn't working. Please update on procedures, I understand the shortage here in Michigan, Comment Genesee County get 3000 does, First 3000 that registered are called, post the list!!!
Today I received the Covid-19 Vaccine, Moderna. The experience has been amazing. I was greeted by the Sheriff, paper work verified by the GCHD, given the shot by a registered nurse along with being greeted by the National guard. Then checked on and released after 15 minutes by the EMT. This whole process ran smooth. I’m thankful for the scientists and doctors who made this record-breaking vaccine possible. A big thank you to the Genesee County Health Department and the health care workers who are administering the vaccine standing out in the cold making the process effortless. #Covid19Vaccination 🙏🏽 #1Down1ToGo 💉 #Educator 🍎
The Genesee County Health Department needs to clarify what is going on, some of us called Senior Centers last week and had our name sent to GCHD, are we ahead of people that got an appointment on line after we signed up, Some are still trying to get appointments on line!!!!! We checked the system and it crashed at 5:00, sad system. No one understands what is going on. Need to just register online and have system generate appointments when vaccine is available, get a system from other counties or from a commercial operation (Meijer, Rite Aid, etc) Thank you
I manage to get a time, fill-in my info, and submitted and got this error message.
when I try to log on, this is what I see
Site has crashed!!! What a joke for vaccine distribution!
High praise to our Genesee County Health Department and the Gensee County Sheriff Department. I received my vaccination at the Perry Center this morning. Major organization! My appointment was at 8:10AM. I arrived a few minutes early since I didn't know whether to enter off Perry Rd or S.Saginaw St. It ended up being Perry Rd. There was a GESH cruiser there directing traffic. There were maybe 10 cars ahead of me. The line began to move PROMPTLY at 8:00AM. They had 10 nurses on duty as well as some county paramedics and one Regional Ambulance, as a precaution. I received my Pfizer vaccine at 8:10AM. No side effects felt. Traffic is directed to the south side of the building to wait out your 15 mins and then you exit out onto S. Saginaw. I was on my way home at 8:34AM. I go back for my second shot 3 weeks from today, same time, same place. Hats off to every single person involved in this roll out at the Perry Center. Proud day for Genesee County! Many thanks for all the hard work that has been done, is being done and will continue to get done! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏⭐
I am trying to register, I am 77 years old with COPD. can not find how to register.
I have commented on this site's a couple times, I saw that you added a couple of sites, The only way to do this safely is "Drive through" Most older citizens can't stand very long, and lines would spread virus, plus the cold, it's winter in Michigan. Find someplace to drive in and out, better for health care workers and everyone.
