By now, you’ve hard that the CDC has recommended pausing the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine.

So, what impact does this have on the City of Detroit’s “Neighborhood Vaccine Week?” Not much, as the City’s plans are still a go.

Detroit was scheduled to administer Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines to residents participating in Neighborhood Vaccine Week, but now, they will administer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines instead.

Detroit officials state that anyone who made a vaccination appointment this week should keep it.

Note that vaccination appointments must be made in advance by calling 313-230-0505. Appointments are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. the rest of the week.

Here’s information on the remaining days:

Wednesday, April 14
Brenda Scott Academy — 18440 Hoover Street, Detroit
Cass Technical High School — 2501 2nd Avenue, Detroit

Thursday, April 15
Herman A. Breithaupt Career and Technical Center — 9300 Hubbell Avenue, Detroit
Islamic Center of Detroit — 14350 Tireman Avenue, Detroit

Friday, April 16

There are several location options for individuals seeking to get vaccinated in Detroit, including the city’s new walk-up vaccination clinic at the TCF Center.
