LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist traveled to the Central Michigan University vaccination site in Mount Pleasant and the Alma College Vaccination site in Alma to observe ongoing COVID-19 vaccination efforts and ensure that vaccines are being distributed efficiently and equitably. He was joined by Central Michigan University President Bob Davies, Regional Emergency Management Director Marc Griffis, and Alma College President Jeff Abernathy.  


"Our administration has been working around the clock to expand our vaccine program in an efficient and equitable manner so that every Michigander has access to the safe and effective vaccines," said Lt. Governor Gilchrist"The vaccination efforts like the ones in Mount Pleasant and Alma are crucial to beating COVID-19. I encourage all Michiganders to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect our friends, family, and neighbors and so we can get back to doing the things we love together." 


To date, Michigan has administered 5,788,119 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 Central Michigan University and Alma College to create more opportunities for Michigan residents to receive a vaccine.
