LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Sparrow Health System spokesman John Foren says appointments at the Frandor site are booked for the rest of the week. Those in the essential frontline workers and those over age 70 can now schedule an appointment online and go to the Frandor site drive through to get the vaccine.

It is unclear right now when Sparrow will start taking appointments for next week. Currently, the plan is based on how many doses Sparrow gets from the state.

590 doses expected to be given per day through Friday, followed by a smaller amount of doses expected to be given Saturday.

They are just closing down here at 6 p.m., but they’ll start back up tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.

Health officials tell News 10 it was a really good turnout on Tuesday. They say the goal is to distribute approximately 600 shots per day. So far they’ve distributed a little over 450. Officials predict that they’ll have similar turnouts for the rest of the week.

“It seems that the community is really eager to get a vaccine, everyone that’s coming through is extremely appreciative so I would imagine in the future it’s gonna stay the same,” said Foren.

You can register online or by phone at 877-205-1300. Wednesday’s hours will be from 7 a.m.- 3 p.m.

WILX will update this story as more information becomes available.
