Van Buren/Cass District Health Department is administering COVID-19 vaccine based on priority groups determined by MDHHS and subject to vaccine availability.  This form determines phase and priority groups for individuals and workplaces and collects contact information.  We will notify you using the contact information provided when we are able to schedule you for COVID-19 vaccination, please ensure the information is accurate before submitting.  
Vaccination in one phase may not be complete before vaccination in another phase begins.  The timing of the start of vaccination in a phase is dependent upon the supply of vaccine from the manufacturer, how vaccine is allocated from the federal level to Michigan, and the capacity to administer vaccine to populations.

What is the difference between Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19?
Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis. Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two.
While more is learned every day, there is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it.

Hike Our Preserves Partnership Between
the South Haven Memorial Library and the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy
The South Haven Memorial Library is partnering with the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy during the sixth year of the Hike Our Preserves (HOP!) program.  This program has been very successful in the past with over 650 children and adults taking the opportunity to exercise and enjoy nature in the 11 preserves that are available to explore.  Parents or guardians of children who have South Haven Memorial Library cards are able to register their children for FREE.  The library has a limited number of these free slots.  At the time of registration children will receive a free walking stick.  After hiking each HOP! preserve the children will receive a medallion.  Children who complete 10 hikes at different preserves get a free gift from Jr. Rangerland if they are among the first 50 participants to complete this goal.
More information is available about the HOP! Program at the conservancy’s website,  Please call ahead to make sure the free registrations are available.  The library’s telephone number is 269-637-2403.
