(CBS DETROIT) – Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan announced Wednesday that the city will offer vaccinations for Detroiters age 12-15.
Now that the Pfizer vaccine has received CDC approval, we have made arrangements for it to be available at each of our walk-in and drive-up locations. While available, it will be up to parents to make the best decision for their family whether to have their children vaccinated.
