MICHIGAN - On May 3, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that Michigan surpassed 7 million COVID-19 vaccinations.
“We’ve put shots in arms of 1 in 2 Michiganders 16 and up and over 1 in 3 are fully vaccinated, including 2 in 3 seniors,” said Whitmer. “As we get closer to achieving our goal of equitably vaccinating 70% of Michiganders 16 and up, we have to remember that we are still in this fight against the virus.”
Fifty percent of eligible Michiganders have now received at least one dose of the vaccine and 38% of Michiganders are fully vaccinated.
“Every dose brings us closer to reaching our goal of equitably vaccinating at least 70% of Michigander’s ages 16 and older as soon as possible,” said Lieutenant Governor, Garlin Gilchrist. “The COVID-19 vaccine is our best shot to being free from this pandemic, and the quickest way for our lives to return to normal is for everyone to get vaccinated.”
