COVID-19 Information

As we continue to work through the many changes COVID-19 has brought to our lives, Henry Ford’s care teams are prepared to provide up-to-date, effective care to our patients and loved ones affected by COVID-19.

Schedule your COVID vaccine or booster appointment

Bivalent Pfizer vaccine and boosters are available by appointment for established patients in our Primary Care and Pediatric centers. Schedule an appointment using MyChart. Children under age 18 must be Henry Ford Health patients and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive a vaccination at Henry Ford Health.

Original, monovalent vaccine no longer given

In accordance with the Michigan Department of Health and Humans Services directive, Henry Ford now only administers the bivalent vaccine. The bivalent vaccine is effective against the original coronavirus strain as well as the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 subvariants.

If you or your child is set to begin or complete your primary vaccine series – dose 1 or 2 – you will now receive the bivalent vaccine to complete your series, even if the first dose was the monovalent version. If your appointment to receive those doses is scheduled in the next few days, it may need to be rescheduled as we update our electronic ordering systems to reflect the change to bivalent only.

COVID-19 Testing

Henry Ford only offers COVID-19 testing for established Henry Ford patients who have been referred for testing by their doctor. Our Emergency Departments are not COVID-19 testing sites and do not offer COVID-19 testing for people who are not being seen in the Emergency Department for COVID-19 symptoms.

Many locations offer convenient, free testing. Find a COVID testing site near you and learn more about when to get tested.

Visiting hours are established at each hospital to support social distancing and safety for patients, visitors and employees. Review our visiting policies and hours here.
