SMART partnership helps support drive through vaccination site for seniors.

Friday, February 12, 2021/Categories: Featured Homepage News

Due to high call volumes, callers may get a busy signal if all lines are full

SMART is assisting Macomb County and the Macomb County Health Department in their efforts to get Macomb senior residents vaccination appointments.  SMART has established the Macomb County Vaccination Hotline program to register Macomb County seniors for vaccinations through the Macomb County Health Department.  If you're a Macomb County resident who meets the current county guidelines for age, you may register in the following ways:

1) Call (586) 421-6579

2) Macombvaccine@smartbus.org

What we’re doing:

For many seniors, transportation can be a barrier to getting the vaccine.  Through our partnership, we coordinate with the health department and arrange transportation to the vaccination site and help overcome that barrier. 

SMART Call Center staff taking calls for interested senior to be added to the County’s waiting list for the vaccine.  Once an appointment has been scheduled SMART will work with the resident to schedule a ride to the vaccination site.

How Does the Program Work?   

Once the vaccine becomes available, we will follow these steps:

  1. The county will call those on the waitlist to schedule an appointment.
  2. Once the appointment is made, SMART will call the resident to schedule a ride to and from the vaccination site

This process allows SMART to help our community by providing rides to those in need and making sure access to the limited doses the county has available. 

How can you get on the waiting list?

Call the SMART Macomb Vaccine Hotline on the dedicated phone number (586) 421-6579 and email address Macombvaccine@smartbus.org for any Macomb County senior who is not in our database to call in and be added to a new registration database.  Please include four pieces of information:  First and Last Name, Date of Birth, Phone Number and Street Address. The information will be sent to the County and added to the waiting list for appointments.
