District Health Department Four is offering a number of COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites in multiple places over its four county service area during the month of January, in cooperation with Honu Management Group.

The health department provides services to people who live and work in Cheboygan, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle Counties. Anyone who has any questions regarding the COVID-19 testing results from these events can call Honu Management Group at 866-809-8282, or email covid19help@honumg.com.

There will be several events in Alpena and Montmorency counties where people will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccine or booster shots.

In Alpena — at the Alpena County Fairgrounds — on Tuesdays throughout the month of January, there will be vaccine and booster shots available from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. In Lewiston — at the St. Francis of Assisi Church — vaccines will be available 1-7 p.m. Jan. 10 and 24.

All three brands of the COVID-19 vaccine will be available: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson.

No preregistration is required. There will not be any pediatric vaccines or boosters given for children who 5-11 years old.

Appointments may be scheduled, if a patient prefers, by calling 800-221-0294.

Four locations around the health department’s service area will also offer rapid antigen testing — which returns results in 15 minutes — and PCR testing, which returns results in two to three days.

From 10 a.m until 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 8, Thunder Bay Junior High in Alpena will be offering these tests. It is hoped these tests will be offered each week throughout January, but at this time, the health department has only confirmed the one day.

From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on every Tuesday throughout the month, the Alpena County Fairgrounds will also be offering testing. The Cheboygan Knights of Columbus Hall will offer these tests from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. each Thursday throughout the month.

St. Francis of Assisi Church in Lewiston will be offering the testing events 1-7 p.m. Mondays in January, on Jan. 10 and 24.
