Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Thursday.
The vaccine was administered by Michigan’s chief medical executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun. Whitmer was joined by six Grand Rapids teens who are serving as Protect Michigan Commission COVID-19 ambassadors.
The six students who received their vaccine with Whitmer have volunteered to serve as ambassadors. They urge their peers to get vaccinated and continue to practice mask-wearing and social distancing.
According to officials, Michigan has administered 6,820,926 vaccines as of Thursday (April 29). Michigan is working to administer 100,000 shots every day.
Michiganders 16 and 17 years old are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine only. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available for everyone 18 and older.
