Wide COVID vaccine availability still months away for Washtenaw County residents, health official says
DETROIT – On Tuesday, President Joe Biden announced that his administration plans on purchasing 200 million more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Some health officials in Washtenaw County are looking at a timeline of months and not weeks. The Washtenaw County Health Department says the region is still in phase 1A for COVID vaccines. “Unless something changes drastically we are looking into the spring until it is more widely available,” said Susan Ringler-Cerniglia with the Washtenaw County Health Department. That means if you are younger than 65 it may be summer before your chances at getting the COVID-19 vaccine arrives in the county.
