The homebound program is part of Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans' ongoing efforts to increase vaccine access to residents who want the vaccination but can’t make it to one of the Health Dept's COVID vaccine clinics.

Residents in the City of Northville (both Wayne and Oakland Counties) or the City of Plymouth can call 248-449-9902 to arrange for a vaccine, which will be administered by EMS personnel from the Northville City Fire Dept. Those who live with the homebound person can also get the vaccine at the same time, so be sure to let the call taker know the total number of people who will be vaccinated at your home. There is no out-of-pocket cost to receive the vaccine.

“We are glad to be able to play a role in helping as many of our residents as possible become fully vaccinated against this terrible virus” said Fire Chief Steve Ott. “The more people who get vaccinated, the sooner we can return to a more normal life.”
