WARREN — The city of Warren will partner with McLaren Health System and Walgreens to deliver COVID-19 vaccinations at City Hall for residents according to current priority phase guidelines by appointment only March 10-12.

According to a release from the office of Warren Mayor Jim Fouts this morning, the vaccination clinic will be conducted in partnership with McLaren Health System and Walgreens Pharmacy and supported by paramedics from the Warren Fire Department. Security will be provided by the Warren Police Department and the Citizens Emergency Response Team.

“I speak with Warren residents every day who are having difficulty accessing COVID-19 vaccinations. Throughout the pandemic, Warren City Hall has served as a hub of help for our residents. Our partnership with Forgotten Harvest Food Bank has delivered countless food packages every Monday to residents in need, and through our partnership with Wayne State Health we have administered thousands of COVID-19 tests free of charge every Thursday and Saturday. All of these services delivered right in front of City Hall," Fouts stated in the release.

Vaccines will be administered from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.  The vaccine clinic will be held in the first floor atrium at City Hall on Van Dyke Avenue, north of 12 Mile Road.

“We are working to make this an ongoing project with the goal of helping to make certain that everyone in our community gets vaccinated soon so we can start returning to normal," Fouts said.

The current Pfizer two-dose vaccine will be administered. Both vaccine doses can be scheduled.

- First responders not covered in Phase 1A

- Firefighters

- Police officers

- Conservation officers

- Inspectors

- Corrections workers

- Workers in homeless shelters or congregate child care institutions

- Adult and child protective services

- Other frontline essential workers in sectors essential to the functioning of society and at substantially higher risk of exposure to COVID-19 because work-related activities must be performed on-site and involve being in close proximity (within 6 feet) to the public or to coworkers
