As of Monday, the city of Detroit’s vaccination rate is 22.93% -- which is far below neighboring areas and the overall state average, which is 39.7%.
There are several location options for individuals seeking to get vaccinated in Detroit, including the city’s new walk-up vaccination clinic at the TCF Center.
