The MDHHS says starting Monday, all Michiganders ages 16 and up can make an appointment to get their dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The State Health Department says it is expected to take several weeks for everyone who wants to get a vaccine to make an appointment.

While those who are at least 16 can make an appointment, providers are told to prioritize those most at risk.

Most importantly, out of the three vaccines given emergency use authorization in the U.S., Pfizer is the only option for those under the age of 18.
