Meijer Pharmacies In Michigan Are Expanding Covid-19 Vaccines to All Stores
As of yesterday (03/29/21) the state of Michigan passed the 4 million mark of doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer says “Our rollout continues to pick up steam and we will not rest until we reach our goal of equitably vaccinating 70% of Michiganders ages 16 and up. Michigan continues to make significant strides – administering four million vaccines in less than four months – as we work to ensure every Michigander has access to the vaccine. In line with President Biden’s goals, all Michiganders 16 and up will be eligible to receive the vaccine starting April 5. We will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever and celebrate Independence Day together with friends and family. We will become the state that beat this damn virus.”
Michigan based Meijer is a partner of the Federal Retail Pharmacy program which will effectively receive and administer doses of the vaccine in Midwest states it operates in, including Michigan.
