LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is doubling Michigan's daily COVID-19 vaccination goal to 100,000 shots. She cites continuous week-over-week increases in allotments and an expanded number of providers that can administer doses. She calls vaccinations safe, effective and essential to getting the country back to normal. Michigan's direct allotment of doses will total about 620,000 next week, a record. That is 12%, or roughly 66,000, more than this week and includes a substantial boost in the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The Indiana Department of Health reported 81 additional confirmed deaths over the last week. That brings the state’s total to 12,617 confirmed deaths. The state also reported more than 6,000 new cases in the last week.

Subaru’s Lafayette auto plant began vaccinating workers on Friday as part of a statewide plan to ramp up vaccinations.

By next week the company hopes to vaccinate up to one thousand employees per week.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State health officials say more than 1 million Indiana residents have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and more than half of those individuals are now fully vaccinated. The Indiana Department of Health said Monday that since late December, a total of 1,000,321 Hoosiers had received at least one vaccine dose, and 569,465 of them are fully vaccinated. State Health Commissioner Kris Box is encouraging any eligible Hoosier to sign up now to get their first shot.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Meijer is expanding COVID-19 vaccinations across Michigan this week, with plans to administer up to 25,000 doses to people age 65 and older by week’s end. Monday's announcement comes more than three weeks after the retailer began immunizations at a limited number of its pharmacies in Wayne County. Residents can pre-register by sending a text message, going online or visiting a Meijer pharmacy. Meijer reports administering more than 20,000 doses since its first clinic on Jan. 15, primarily to seniors.

Indiana officials say the state will begin to receive a slight increase in its number of COVID-19 vaccine doses – but not enough to open up appointments to more people.

A bill that would give Hoosier workers the right to refuse employer-mandated vaccines had its first hearing in a committee Wednesday morning. It would go further than current federal laws and excuse workers based on their conscience.

Hoosiers 70 and older can now register for appointments to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Indiana Department of Health announced the expansion Wednesday.
