The good news is the West Michigan Vaccine Clinic at DeVos Place is anticipating a busy week with 12,000 people or more each day in downtown Grand Rapids. The bad news could be will there be any place to park? Back to the good news, YES!

Fox 17 reported there are a few different ways for you to park:

Of course, you may park underneath DeVos Place. That itself is a 700-car parking facility. But, it could fill quickly. So where else can you go? Try these:

Government Center Ramp, 300 Monroe, across the street from DeVos Place- The ramp can be accessed off Ottawa or one of the two Monroe entrances. Bring your parking ticket to the clinic for validation.

MOTU: Park at any of the MOTU meters. To download the MOTU app instructions, click here [spectrumhealth.org] and then on DeVos Place Instructions. You can get $3 OFF with code VACCINECLINIC

Gerald Ford Museum North and South Lots and Rapid Shuttle: Park at the Museum lots, located off Scribner Avenue and Bridge Street/Michigan Avenue. These lots are available as overflow, and gates will open automatically upon entry.

A shuttle from The Rapid will run every eight minutes to and from DeVos Place. The shuttle stop is located on Bridge Street/Michigan Avenue. To return to these lots, The Rapid will pick up at the bus stop located just outside of DeVos Place/Monroe Avenue on the left after exiting the building.

The Kent County Health Department reminds all of us the in order to get the vaccine, you must register. their website, vaccinatewestmi.com has all the information and how, and where to register. As doses become available, eligible individuals will be contacted by that provider to make an appointment.
