Vaccinations of those 65 and older in the Upper Peninsula have been going extremely well.

Dr. Robert Lorinser is medical director of the Marquette County Health Department.

“I think everybody is probably either wrapping up, done, or will be done very shortly, and looking forward to working with the state for the next group,” said Lorinser. 

On Monday vaccinations will open to residents older than 50 with pre-existing conditions.

Lorinser says health officials are now waiting for the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine to get to the UP.
