Representatives will be available every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help those calling to get a vaccine. Once a patient dials the number, they will be connected to a phone tree with options to schedule a vaccine appointment, ask questions about the vaccine or find a new primary care provider.

Kettering Health partnered with The HCI Group and invested $300,000 over the last few months to expand the call center.
