COVID-19 Resources and Updates

As we see numbers continue to rise again, Health Pointe continues to partner closely with our parent organization’s Emergency Preparedness and Infection Prevention to care for our community. We are working with our providers, suppliers, the local health department and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccines are critical to the health of our community, and the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine will be an important step toward recovery. Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine will play a big role in reducing COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.

The goal is for everyone to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available; however, not everyone will be able to get vaccinated right away.

We will be following the federal government’s phased approach for vaccinations to ensure that those most in need are prioritized.

What is the process for scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine?

At this time, Health Pointe is not currently administering COVID-19 vaccines, however, our partner Spectrum Health is administering them.

At this time, please do not call your provider’s office for vaccine scheduling. To prepare for scheduling your COVID-19 vaccination, follow the steps below.

COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling (updated 2/1/2021)

Step 1: Register for the COVID-19 Vaccine

Step 2: Wait for a notification that you are able to schedule

  • After you have registered, you are all set. You will be notified when there is a vaccine available and it is time for you to schedule your appointment.

Step 3: Schedule your vaccination

If you previously filled out a COVID-19 vaccination questionnaire through Spectrum Health, rest assured we have your registration, and you are on the list for a vaccine. You do not need to complete registration again.

Ottawa County – “I want the COVID-19 Vaccine” Sign Up

Ottawa County has created a COVID-19 vaccine notification sign-up. You’ll need to provide your contact information and which phase best describes you. Local public health will notify you via email when your phase is open and where you can go to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This sign-up is for notification purposes ONLY. Receiving notification is not a determination that you are eligible in that phase or guaranteed the vaccine. Vaccine eligibility and availability will be determined by the place administering vaccines.
