“The Making Real Change tour highlights equitable vaccine access across the state and encourages people who may be hesitant to get the safe, effective vaccine,” said Lt. Governor Gilchrist. “Saginaw has been resilient throughout the pandemic, even as COVID-19 has disproportionally harmed Black Michiganders and other people of color across the state. We must listen to and address the specific needs of communities and equip local leaders with the resources necessary to inspire relatives, friends, and other loved ones to get vaccinated. The best thing all of us can do to protect ourselves, our families, and neighbors is to get vaccinated, so we can grow the economy, create jobs, and get back to doing the things we love together.”
The Making Real Change Tour stopped in Flint and Grand Rapids last week and will also stop in Detroit.
