Introducing Blue Queue: The only way to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine

December 16, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

As many of you know, the first shipment of COVID-19 vaccines arrived on Monday, Dec. 14 at Michigan Medicine in the first step of a massive effort to vaccinate all U-M and Michigan Medicine faculty, staff, students and patients.

The organization will eventually vaccinate everyone who wants to be vaccinated. Currently, vaccine supplies are limited so the COVID-19 Vaccine & Therapeutics Taskforce (CVTT), a multidisciplinary team of experts, has developed a prioritization for distribution based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Council on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

To facilitate this process, all faculty, staff and students should complete the Blue Queue questionnaire. Blue Queue is the official tool for all U-M faculty, staff and students to indicate they would like to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through the university. The questionnaire asks to identify:

  • Your interest in receiving an invitation to schedule the vaccine; you can also indicate that you do not want the vaccine at this time
  • General health information and information about your role

When filling out the questionnaire, answer everything to the best of your knowledge with the information you have available. Some questions may not be straightforward for every one answering so it is okay to answer as best you can.

You must log in using your uniqname and UMICH password (Level 1 for Michigan Medicine) to complete the questionnaire. This is a new questionnaire so please be sure to complete it, even if you previously completed a survey related to COVID-19 vaccines. Completing the Blue Queue questionnaire is the only way to receive an invitation to schedule a vaccination.

It is important for all faculty, staff and students to participate so the organization can administer all available doses and vaccinate as many members of the community as quickly as possible. Even if you do not yet know if you want to receive the vaccine, please complete the questionnaire as soon as possible. If you change your mind about receiving a vaccine at a later date, you can resubmit the survey and change your response.

To learn more about the vaccine or if you have questions, please visit the COVID-19 vaccine frequently asked questions page. These questions are updated frequently so be sure to check for updated information.
