As of Friday, more than 1.6 million residents, or 28% of the population, have received at least one dose of vaccine. 16.3% of state residents have completed their vaccination process.

Hometown Pharmacies, Managed Health Care Associates, Meijer and Walmart are now receiving a direct supply of vaccine from the federal government to administer.
