Around 67.4% of Michiganders have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, putting the state 2.6% away from its goal.
Meanwhile, the Ingham County Health Department announced they will start vaccinating children ages six months old to four years old on Tuesday, June 28.
The announcement comes days after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for the youngest age group of kids.
“This youngest age group and their families have been anxiously waiting for the authorization of this
vaccine for a very long time,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. “The vaccine will give
children significant protection from COVID-19 and further contribute to protecting our community.”
Vaccines at the Human Services Building will be available on Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 5305 S. Cedar St. in Lansing.
Doses will be administered through the MSU Breslin Center on July 1 and July 29, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
