Since Dec. 14, when Michigan administered its first COVID-19 doses to frontline workers at the University of Michigan, the state has reported more than 1.4 million doses in arms, as of Feb. 11. The state has also reported more than 2 million doses distributed.
The vaccine allotment has been split between Pfizer and Moderna, with a bit more Moderna doses being distributed in the state as of this week.

Where Michigan ranks
Michigan ranks 8th among U.S. states for total shots given, and 10th for distribution, according to data from the New York Times.
Currently, about 10% of the Michigan population has received at least one vaccine dose. Just 4% have received two doses, but of course, this comes weeks after the first dose. Only Alaska, New Mexico and West Virginia are above 12% for the first dose.
Michigan also ranks 11th among U.S. states for doses used, at 74%, as of Feb. 11.
The U.S. is averaging about 1.6 million doses administered per day.
