Volunteers Needed To Help Vaccinate At New Sears Site In Frandor
How many times have you driven past the empty Sears building in Frandor? The only spark of activity there now is the Sparrow Drive-Drive Thru Services in the formerly Sears garage.
On any given day there are lines and lines and lines of cars.
Cars and pylons. Sometimes wrapped around the building.
Beforehand, this was just another site for Covid-19 testing. It has evolved to Covid-19 vaccinations that you don't even have to get out of your car for. With vaccinations at this site now, you know there is a slight waiting period after you've received your shot so that increases wait times and lines. Long lines.
To remedy that problem, the folks at Sparrow have decided to take the show inside the empty Sears building.
Sparrow Health System is helping to get more people vaccinated by opening up a clinic inside the old Sears building at the Frandor Mall. This new vaccination clinic is located at 3131 E Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI 48912. (WILX)
By offering vaccinations inside the empty Sears building, they plan to serve more people and get more doses into arms.
...now they can vaccinate three times as many people inside and that means they need more people to help give the shots. Today that are administering out about 900 shots and plan to ramp it up to 3000 a day within the next coming weeks. (WILX)
If you're interested in volunteering to help make sure your community is safe and protected against Covid-19, HEAD HERE AND SIGN UP.
If you're looking to get vaccinated inside the Sears location, you should head HERE for more information and register in advance through MySparrow to set-up an appointment.
Here's a site map so you can know where to enter if you're getting your shot inside and how to avoid getting into that long line that will lead you through the garage bays.
