5 Fast Facts for Michigan’s Paychecks

Covid Vaccine-What to Know

Calling Out those Media Fact Checkers who said the U.S. Couldn’t do it. The vaccine is in fact here before Year’s End! 

  • The Corona Vaccine is here! Over 200 companies scrambled to make the vaccine and Pfizer has the first one! Plus, it was largely developed here in Michigan! Proud residents even cheered as the first trucks left Pfizer’s Portage, MI facility Monday on their way to distribute the vaccine far and wide. 
  • The FDA just approved the vaccine for people aged 16 and older - Pfizer did clinical trials on about 44,000 people and showed that the vaccine safely protected people from Covid-19 about 95% of the time.
  • Health officials sent out a first round of about 6.4 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine - About 3 million doses are expected to be shipped immediately and another 3 million held back and shipped a few weeks later so the first people to take the vaccine can get the second of two doses.
  • It's basically those who need it most go first - High-priority groups are essential workers (police and teachers) seniors (adults 65 and older), and people with high-risk medical conditions. It might be spring or summer before it gets to the rest of us.
  • BIG step in the RIGHT direction - The first of many COVID-19 vaccines means we are taking steps to keep the bounce back on track! YET we still need a stimulus of some kind, our schools to open up again, and the business climate to improve for paychecks of all kinds!
