Northwest Activities Center To Become Site For Johnson & Johnson Vaccine(CBS DETROIT) – Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is rolling out an ambitious plan to nip the coronavirus in the bud. “If we want people back to work, we want people not to be afraid of being evicted, we want to get the criminal justice system going, we want to get the restaurants open, we have to get vaccinated faster,” said Duggan. The city that once led the country in flattening the curve is now behind on vaccine distribution and Duggan is ramping up a new site to get on track. “We are going to have to open a second major vaccine site and it will be open later this month at the Northwest Activities Center on Meyers and we’re going to offer the Johnson & Johnson one shot vaccine with the space inside,” the mayor said. Duggan’s Johnson & Johnson approval comes after criticism for rejecting it in a remark that showed favor to Moderna and Pfizer’s two-shot method. “I know I said some things about Johnson & Johnson. It was my fault for not having more research than I should have but after having done that research it’s obvious that the record Johnson & Johnson has, at the height of the pandemic and operating in South Africa, and South America and Britain, it is a highly effective shot,” said Duggan. The mayor’s vaccine expansion also includes making every Detroiter over the age of 50 eligible for the vaccine by March 22. People who travel to work or live with chronic illnesses will be eligible for the vaccine in April. “What I want to do is give every Detroiter two choices. You can go to the main one-shot center down at the Northwest Activity Center or you can come down to TCF for the two shot vaccines,” he said. Mayor Duggan expects to open vaccines to all residents by May. © 2021 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

Whitmer Visits I-94 Lansing Avenue Bridge In JacksonLANSING, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) -- Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to the I-94 Lansing Avenue Bridge in Jackson on Monday to discuss the administration’s Rebuilding Michigan plan and the $300 million proposal that would address our crumbling bridges and make a greater investment in our infrastructure. The governor was joined by Jackson Mayor Derek Dobies and members of Local 324 Union for Operating Engineers.   "Investing in critical infrastructure is a top priority for my administration because it supports our families, small businesses, and communities,” said Whitmer. “I am proud of the ongoing work here in Jackson that will create jobs and make the roads safer for all who travel on it. We're on the right track to fix the damn roads and bridges."  The I-94 project has received $120 million through the Rebuilding Michigan bonding initiative with construction beginning on March 8. Rebuilding Michigan is a $3.5 billion program to rebuild state highways and bridges that are critical to the state’s economy and carry the most traffic. Governor Whitmer’s budget proposes a $300 million Bridge Bundling proposal would have MDOT fix 120 bridges in serious or critical condition. 
Lawyers Seeking 32% Of $641M Flint Tainted Water SettlementDETROIT (AP) — Lawyers who negotiated a $641 million settlement for victims of Flint’s lead-contaminated water are asking a judge to set aside up to 32% for fees and expenses for years of work on the case. If granted, the request would total $202 million in fees and $7 million in expenses for dozens of attorneys who made a deal with the state of Michigan, Flint, a hospital and an engineering firm, according to a court filing Monday. “Working together, plaintiffs’ counsel have achieved a landmark $641.25 million partial settlement in these cases that the court has rightly called ‘complex’ and ‘intensely litigated.’ ... Plaintiffs’ counsel have worked on a contingent basis for more than five years now, without compensation of any kind, to achieve this remarkable result,” the lawyers said. Regulators in then-Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration allowed Flint to use the Flint River in 2014-15 without treating the water to reduce corrosion. As a result, lead in old pipes broke off and flowed through taps. The catastrophe in the majority-Black city has been described as an example of environmental racism. Separately, experts have blamed the water for an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease, which led to at least 12 deaths in the Flint area. Michigan is paying $600 million of the settlement. Attorney General Dana Nessel said she will not take a public position on how much the attorneys should receive, a condition that was part of the deal. In the months ahead, U.S. District Judge Judith Levy will decide how much money for lawyers will be carved out of the settlement. The agreement makes money available to every Flint child who was exposed to the water, every adult who can show an injury, certain business owners and anyone who paid water bills. Flint switched back to a Detroit regional water agency in fall 2015, when a doctor publicly reported elevated lead levels in children. Attorneys representing Flint residents have said 80% of payments will go to people who were under 18 when the river water was used. The estates of people who died from Legionnaires’ would qualify for $300,000 to $1.5 million. Separately, Snyder and eight other people are charged with crimes in the Flint water scandal. © 2021 Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

Whitmer: Please Turn On Lights To Remember Pandemic VictimsLANSING, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist are marking the one-year anniversary of the first cases of COVID-19 being diagnosed in Michigan by asking all Michiganders to turn on the lights outside of their homes on Wednesday, March 10, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., in remembrance of the Michiganders lost to the coronavirus. “We’ve had a difficult year and lost so many fellow Michiganders, “said Whitmer. “On Wednesday, Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist and I urge everyone to turn on their porch lights for an hour, so that we can remember those we’ve lost and remind ourselves that even in times of darkness, we’re in this together. As we mark this occasion, we also look towards the light at the end of the tunnel. We have three safe, effective vaccines, all miracles of science, that will help protect you, your family, and others from COVID and help us get our country and the economy back to normal.” 
Residents Rate Mayor Duggan’s COVID Response On Pandemic’s Anniversary(CBS DETROIT) – From the summer riots, to testing sites and vaccine distributions, Detroiters have a lot to say about Mayor Mike Duggan’s performance in the pandemic and they’re not holding back. “I think Detroit was the first site of where you can go get tested at which was at the state fairgrounds. He made that happen. So he did great,” said Ortagus Jackson. Mayor Duggan is receiving both support and criticism for his COVID-19 response. “The city could do a better job at promoting who’s eligible and allowing the people who are eligible to know about it because even for some of my direct family members they didn’t know that because they were teachers or they didn’t know that because they worked in schools that they can get the vaccine until other people came and told them,” said Tray Little. On the one-year anniversary of the pandemic residents are speaking out about Duggan’s leadership through the crisis. “I think that we need those testing sites still to be active the ones that have been closed down because there’s still a lot of people who don’t know where to get tested at,” said Anne Lynn. In addition to the health emergency the pandemic presented, social tensions and uprising also reared its head during an already chaotic period for the Duggan administration. “Could it have been handled better yes, if everybody would have listened to get (their) point across,” said Jackson. “When he came out to respond to how some of the protests were going and he was looking for more non-violent protest and I feel like, you know I felt good that he acknowledged that the non-violent protest that we were leading was something that was making a difference in our city,” said Little. And as we move forward to push pass the pandemic residents say they what the mayor to continue putting his best efforts forward to keep the city safe. “It’s not to speak negative against anybody because I want to assume everybody is doing the best that they can but are you doing all that you could? You know, I do understand that you’re doing the best but is there more?” said Muat Bulu. © 2021 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Michigan Makes Homeless Eligible For COVID Vaccines, Detroit Leads The Effort(CBS DETROIT) – Housing insecurity is a real problem for over 60,000 people living in the state of Michigan. In addition to being exposed to the elements, 40 percent of the homeless population has long-term physical or mental health conditions, which according to the CDC puts them at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. To tackle this issue Michigan is pushing this disadvantaged group to the front of the vaccine distribution line. Although the state officially made the homeless population a priority group for the COVID vaccine on Monday, outreach in Detroit has been in progress since January. “At the beginning at the early stages people were a little bit scared, so because they said, ‘why us’ and we didn’t know the results of it yet so, matter of fact like myself, I went and took the vaccine in front of them to encourage them that this is a good thing to do and we had our staff members who are providing services to them take the vaccine and the encouraged the population to start coming and taking it,” said Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries President/Ceo Chad Audi. The Detroit Health Department is connecting with local shelters to administer COVID vaccines to guests and staff. Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries is one of the 29 shelters partnering with the city of Detroit. “From the beginning a lot of measure has been put in place through the providers and the city of Detroit, so it was a partnership, which is resulted in a very low number of the homeless population to be infected,” said Audi. More than 2,000 homeless Detroiters have been vaccinated. For appointments and more information call 313-230-0505. © 2021 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.
