Vice President Kamala Harris has rescheduled her trip to Detroit for Monday, the White House announced Wednesday evening.
Harris was slated to visit Michigan on June 28 to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but that was delayed after significant flooding in metro Detroit. Only 31% of Detroit’s population is vaccinated. The goal is for 70% of the country to be immunized to reach herd immunity.
This will be her first trip to the state since being elected.
President Joe Biden appeared in Antrim County on Saturday alongside Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to mark progress against the pandemic.
