Whitmer pledges vaccine rollout improvements, but much depends on feds

Families can feed their children, workers can return to the job and people can start to gather with those whom they love when everyone can feel safe and be healthy, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer stressed in her 2021 State of the State address. 

That cannot happen on a wide enough scale until the majority of Michigan adults are vaccinated, Whitmer said Wednesday evening. 

“In the coming months, the vaccine will be available to the general population. When very little seems in our individual control, the act of getting a vaccine is,” Whitmer said. 

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reiterated her promises that every Michigan resident could get a vaccine, but the state is still hoping the federal government delivers on promises.

She used the virtual address to reiterate the state’s inoculation goals and highlight her COVID-19 recovery plan. 

However, the speech did not include much new information for residents desperate to get a shot: the more vaccines sent by the federal government, the sooner Michiganders will be vaccinated.
