LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a new community vaccine site at United Wholesale Mortgage Sports Complex Vaccine Site in Pontiac which has the capacity to administer up to 3,000 shots per day and will help get our nation back to normal. 


"In Michigan, the vaccine process is getting faster and smoother every day, and this community vaccination site in Oakland County will help us reach our goal of equitably vaccinating 70 percent of Michiganders 16 and up more quickly," said Governor Whitmer. "Everyone should get the safe, effective vaccine once you are eligible because it is the most effective way to protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19 and help get our state back to normalBy ramping up our vaccine distribution, we can beat COVID-19 together and enjoy the summer celebrations that we all crave."  


 To date, Michigan has administered 4,401,510 vaccines, moving the state closer to its goal of equitably vaccinating at least 70% of Michiganders ages 16 and older as soon as possible. As part of these efforts, Michigan is working to administer 100,000 shots per day, partnering with organizations like United Wholesale Mortgage Sports Complex to create more opportunities for Michigan residents to receive a vaccine.
