Michigan State Medical Society on Governor’s COVID-19 Vaccine Goal

Wednesday, January 27, 2021

The following is a public statement from Bobby Mukkamala, MD, president of the Michigan State Medical Society, in response to Governor Whitmer’s State of the State address and goal of vaccinating 50,000 Michiganders a day against COVID-19.

“The Governor’s continued focus on vaccinating Michigan residents against COVID-19 is critically important.  Vaccinating as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, is not only vital to the public’s overall health and well-being, it is also necessary in returning our economy and education system back to where they need it to be. 

“Michigan physicians strongly support the Governor’s goal and will continue their work on the frontlines of this pandemic to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is administered to residents across our state.”
