HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. – Efforts to vaccinate citizens against COVID-19 are underway in Highland Park.
Highland Park Mayor Hubert Yopp said people were supposed to be vaccinated at a Highland Park CVS, but the CVS has closed.
According to a communications director with CVS, the Highland Park store did not renew its lease and closed on Jan. 2. The closure has drawn criticism from Mayor Yopp.
CVS in Michigan has not yet been chosen to serve as vaccination sites in Michigan, but mayor Yopp believes it will be. He said a CVS location on Woodward Avenue would have played a huge role in helping people get vaccinated.
