MARQUETTE, MI--   Anyone over the age of 16 can now get a COVID-19 vaccine in Michigan.

The Marquette County Health Department says vaccine supply in the state has reached the point where it can be offered to the expanded group of people starting Monday.

Officials say as of March 31, 34.5 percent of the eligible population in Michigan is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. They say increasing vaccination rates and moving closer to herd immunity will improve the chances of lifting mask mandates.

Those 16 and older can register for a vaccination at the MCHD, at Upper Great Lakes Health Centers, or at Meijer, Snyders or Walgreens.
