COVID-19 Vaccine Info

The city of Sterling Heights is NOT currently taking appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations at our Senior Center. Due to some misinformation circulating, the City is experiencing a large volume of calls regarding vaccination appointments, but we are not coordinating any appointments at this time. 
Those who are seeking appointments for vaccinations at this time can call the Macomb County Health Department, as well as other health care providers, to secure an appointment. You can also call SMART Macomb vaccine line at 586-421-6579 or email macombvaccine@smartbus.org. We will continue to update and provide the latest info regarding vaccinations.

Macomb County/SMART/Sterling Heights Senior Center Partnership 

Specifically designed for Macomb County residents aged 60 or above, especially those with mobility or transportation issues. SMART will assists in fielding calls and registering seniors on a wait list, which the county will use to set up appointments when vaccines are available. SMART will also make transportation arrangements for those that request assistance.

Vaccines received through this partnership are administered at the Sterling Heights Senior Center located at 40200 Utica Rd., Sterling Heights, MI 48313. 

Interested seniors should call the SMART Macomb Vaccine Hotline at 586-421-6579 to register for the county waitlist. SMART representatives will be available to take calls between the hours of 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Sundays. Seniors or someone they know can avoid the call altogether by emailing the SMART Macomb Vaccine Hotline 24/7 at macombvaccine@smartbus.org, and including their name, address, phone number and date of birth. This is the quickest and easiest way to get registered.

You must be registered. There are no walk-up appointments for COVID-19 vaccines.

After Vaccination Health Checker

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you. And v-safe will remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one. 

Your participation in CDC’s v-safe makes a difference — it helps keep COVID-19 vaccines safe. More info here!
