(CBS DETROIT) – $90.2 million in extra federal COVID-19 funds will go toward Michigan’s vaccine efforts.

The CDC says the award will build partnerships with community-based organizations in areas hit hardest by the pandemic.

Those include communities where commuting to vaccine sites is more difficult or where residents are hesitant about getting vaccinated.
