NEWS on COVID-19 in Michigan: Michigan's top doctor: COVID-19 brings 'the most massive vaccination effort in a century'

“While Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared last week that ‘hope is on the horizon’ with two COVID-19 vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna, the state's chief medical executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun said she knows there will be challenges in the enormous job of vaccinating Michigan's 10 million people.

From prioritizing who should get vaccinated first to finding enough trained health care workers to both care for sick COVID-19 patients in Michigan's hospitals and run vaccine clinics, Khaldun called it ‘the most massive vaccination effort in a century’ in a Friday interview with the Free Press. 

The first doses of the vaccines, which await regulatory review, could be ready to be injected into people's arms before Christmas. 

‘It's important to note that when Michigan gets a vaccine, it will be available in a very limited quantities,’ Khaldun said.

‘We are still awaiting word from the CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on exact numbers of doses Michigan will receive in that first allocation. Because there will be such a limited amount in the beginning, our first priority would be to keep our health care systems operating and to protect those who are the most vulnerable. Right now, this means that we are prioritizing vaccinating front-line health care workers.’”
