60,000 additional vaccine doses authorized for next week

Michigan’s allotment of COVID-19 vaccine for next week will be nearly twice what was expected after the federal government informed state health officials that it will release an additional 60,000 doses. 

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services learned on Tuesday that the state would receive 62,400 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. However, the addition of 60,000 Moderna doses brings the total to 122,400 doses, that the state will have to distribute to hospitals and health departments next week.

Vaccine administration has ramped up over the last three weeks from 21,741 in week one to 50,628 in week two, 73,054 in week three and 125,687 in the past week, MDHHS said.
