What experts say Detroit needs to do to improve lagging COVID-19 vaccination rates

Detroit A majority of southeast Michigan counties are vaccinating residents at twice the rate Detroit is and that gap is threatening to prolong the pandemic in Michigan's largest city and forcing health officials to find alternatives to mass-vaccination sites like the TCF Center and Ford Field.

About 1 in 5, or 21%, of Detroiters have received at least one shot, according to the city's vaccine dashboard, compared to 33% of residents in Macomb County, 40% in suburban Wayne County and 41% in Oakland and Washtenaw counties. Statewide, 37% of all residents have at least one dose.

1. And yet Macomb County is one of the worst for number of cases and deaths.

Maybe they need to focus on that instead. All Hackel is interested in is getting his mug on TV on a regular basis to try to put Governor Whitmer in a bad light, as if this is all her fault. Guess he's running for Governor already. Maybe he should have spent that time urging Macomb residents to follow the guidelines, especially the antimaskers and antivaxxers of which we have many.

The numbers in Macomb per capita are about as bad as they get in the entire state. There are a lot of trumpers in the northern zone.

2. Because Detroiters are pretty good at masking up....

.... Macomb County is the absolute worst. "Freedumb" reigns in the northeast quadrant of the metro area. ..... and good gawd I despise Hackel.
