Spectrum Health launches curbside vaccination program

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Spectrum Health has launched a curbside vaccination program.

Patients can now visit one of more than 40 locations in West Michigan to receive flu shots, childhood vaccinations, vaccinations, injections, tests and blood pressure checks.

“We wanted to meet the patients where they are most comfortable, and that is right in their vehicle,” said Reema Shah, deputy president and department chief of primary health at Spectrum Health.

There are many benefits to curbside, including no time spent in the waiting room. We constantly remind our patients whether they want to see us virtually or as individuals, we are here for you and we are ready for you. “

Appointments can be scheduled online.

Patients using the service are asked to park in designated locations. Patients are then asked to call the phone number listed on the sign placed on the parking lot. Registration is done over the phone, and the clinical staff then meets the patient on their vehicle.

Employees will perform necessary medical services through the car window.

Spectrum, which has been offering close services since early July, says most appointments take less than 10 minutes. To learn more about the curbside program, click here.
