DETROIT – A million vaccines have been distributed in Michigan, which sounds like a lot, until you realize it isn’t nearly enough.

On Sunday’s episode we turned to one of the leading authorities on vaccines. Dr. Arnold Monto, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Michigan School of Public Health spoke about where we stand on vaccine distribution. He is also the acting chair of the FDA’s vaccine committee.

And Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson puts forth her prescription for strengthening Michigan’s elections.

Is it the kind of change Republicans are demanding? The state leader spoke about the issue more on Sunday.
