UPPER PENINSULA, Mich. (WLUC) - More than 40% of Upper Peninsula residents over the age of 16 are now fully vaccinated.

According to Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHSS) data Thursday, 101,070 U.P. residents are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That totals to 40.2% of residents age 16 and older.

Nearly half (49.5%) of Upper Michigan residents 16+ have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

This comes as Gov. Gretchen Whitmer unveiled her “Mi Vacc to Normal Challenge” for Michigan residents. The “MI Vacc to Normal” plan will use four vaccination-based milestones - using data for Michiganders 16 years or older who’ve received their first dose - to guide future steps required to get back to normal.

There are also drive-up vaccine clinics coming up in Florence, Wisconsin, on April 30 and May 7.
