Dear Friend,

Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2021 with a conversation about the new COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. There has been a lot of confusion about the vaccine, and how it works. It has been almost a year since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have lost so many loved ones and faced many challenges as a community. I know it’s been difficult, and I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your sacrifice, courage and dedication during these troubling times. With your commitment to our health and safety, you’ve made a difference in Michigan.
