Michigan May Not Reach 70% Vaccination Goal Until 2022
Getting the Covid19 vaccine is a personal choice, many are not getting it for various reasons. The fact is COVID-19 vaccines do work and helps your immune system fight the Corona Virus.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues most think the vaccine is a big step in taking charge of your health and keeping safe. You do need to take the shot or shots as directed, the FDA says vaccines can prevent severe COVID-19. Yes, I had both my vaccines and I feel pretty good about it, I do respect everyone's feelings on it though.
Michigan's vaccinations are not going as well as some wish they would says fox47news.com. The latest data from Michigan's COVID-19 vaccine dashboard recently passed said that we will not reach 70% of those 16 and over until 2022.
This is How We Are Doing
Here is the deal, Michigan has 62.7% of people over 16 already vaccinated. That is a bit over 5 million folks.
During the month of July, Michigans' COVID-19 vaccination rate has slowed. During the first 18 days of the month, the state averaged just over 3,579 vaccines per day.Despite announcing a vaccine lottery on July 1, the state's vaccination rate continues to slow and it's likely to slow as the months go on, meaning it could be past Jan. 1, 2022 before we hit 70%.
All I know is I want to see all this pandemic craziness behind us and would love to see this thing wiped out, I will do whatever I have to do, and want to do my part to help.
