(LANSING, Mich.) The state of Michigan will be expanding its distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine starting Monday January 11th. People who are 65 and older, police officers, teachers, childcare providers, jail and prison staff, and frontline state and federal workers will be eligible to receive the vaccine starting Monday. The announcement was made by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and officials from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services during a news conference on Wednesday. "The more people we can get the safe and effective vaccine, the faster we can return to a sense of normalcy," said Governor Whitmer. "I urge all seniors to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible." Michigan's goal is to have 70% of residents who are over the age of 16 get the vaccine. People who are eligible to get the vaccine should make an appointment first. If you are eligible you can go to Michigan.gov/COVIDvaccine to find the places near you that are distributing the vaccine.
