Michigan has reported more than 7.4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Tuesday, with 55% of eligible residents having received at least one dose while 42.7% of eligible residents are considered fully vaccinated.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 32.7 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 581,000 deaths reported from the virus.

Note from state: Data provided in the chart below slightly undercounts the true number of doses administered to MI residents -- it does not include the residents who reported out-of-state vaccinations, which brought the total to 55% of eligible residents with at least one dose as of May 10, 2021.

Michigan has reached the first of four vaccine milestones that will trigger the easing of COVID-19 restrictions across the state.

Gretchen Whitmer revealed the state will ease COVID-19 restrictions based on the percentage of Michiganders who have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

In short, certain restrictions will be softened or removed after the state reaches 55%, 60%, 65% and 70% of people with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

But Michigan’s count of daily new virus cases is still leading the nation by a slight margin, and vaccinations -- which experts say are the most important tool to control the virus -- have been slowing across the state.

Just two weeks ago, Michigan was identified as the only state in the country at “severe” risk for COVID-19 spread by research group Covid Act Now.

Michigan is outlining four specific vaccination goals that, once they are reached, will directly trigger the loosening of certain COVID-19 restrictions across the state, Gov.

The reported daily new cases and deaths have been decreasing over the past week, but the latest COVID data update from the state Thursday confirmed what everyone on the frontline can feel: COVID-related hospitalizations are still a serious issue.

All Michigan residents age 16 and up became eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine on April 5, nearly a month before the May 1 date pledged by President Joe Biden.
