VP Harris postpones her trip to Michigan
Vice President Kamala Harris is postponing a visit to Detroit originally set for today. White House officials made the announcement after severe flooding drenched Detroit in recent days. Harris planned to visit Detroit as part of a national campaign encouraging grassroots efforts to promote the ease and effectiveness of vaccinations against COVID-19.
She’s targeting areas with low vaccination rates. Only about a third of Detroiters have received a COVID vaccine.
And while more than 60 percent of Michigan residents statewide have been inoculated…less than a third of those between the ages of 12 and 29 have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
