Health experts work to expand COVID vaccinations
Now that 35-percent of eligible Michiganders are fully vaccinated, health officials say efforts need to focus on groups that are borderline-hesitant.
Borderline hesitant could be: your cousin who hasn't gotten their shot yet because it's inconvenient, or your pregnant friend who's heard mixed messages.
Dr. Stacey Sensor is an OBGYN with Munson Healthcare. She's been stressing the growing evidence that the vaccine is safe for pregnant women, and could even protect the baby too.
"This is an opportunity for our patients to receive that, to have decreased risk of having an adverse event, and I just think it's really really important that they take advantage of this opportunity," said Sensor.
Meanwhile Oakland County just announced a new marketing campaign aimed at "vulnerable and hard to reach communities" using smaller, more targeted clinics.
