LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer asked the White House on Tuesday if it would consider sending additional COVID-19 vaccines to states, including Michigan, that face surging coronavirus cases.
White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients responded that U.S. officials were thinking through how to address hot spots. Everything was on the table, he said, pledging to “support you as you face a difficult situation in Michigan,” according to a readout of a conference call provided by the office of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.
