ST. IGNACE – Mackinac Straits Health System (MSHS) continues to work with local health departments and other
regional partners to stop the spread of the coronavirus. One of the key initiatives is to make COVID-19 vaccinations
Beginning May 13, 2021, and every other Thursday going forward, Mackinac Straits will be offering the Johnson &
Johnson one dose vaccine for those 18 and older. These vaccinations will be by appointment only between 9:00 a.m.
and 12 noon. The vaccines will be administered in the COVID Vaccine Tent located in the southwest corner of the back
parking lot behind the St. Ignace Hospital. Hours may be expanded, if needed. This effort is a community service and
there is no charge for the vaccinations.
To make appointments, call (906) 328-2159. An informational link can also be found on the local health department
website, www.lmasdhd.org. This website also includes details on other vaccination opportunities in the area.

this virus. This includes following the guidelines of wearing a mask, washing hands frequently, practicing recommended
social distancing, and making arrangements to get vaccinated.
