”I will continue to press the state of Michigan until the Wayne County Public Health Division receives the amount of vaccine required to meet the needs of its residents,” Evans said.

WESTLAND, MIch. An 81-year-old woman in Westland with health issues has been unable to get her COVID-19 vaccine shot.
The family said her health conditions should put her at the top of the list, but shes been able to get her shot.
Dorothy Bigalow, 81, has been married for 60 years, raised seven children, worked, lived and paid taxes all in Wayne County.
Wayne County is letting her down. Thats what we say, said Sue Woody.
Woody is one of Bigalows four daughters. Together, theyve worked nonstop to try to get their mother an appointment for a vaccine.
They said theyve tried everything and the fact that the cant get an appointment for her is terrifying for the family.
Were not happy at all — frustrated by this, Woody said. We are against a wall and this can be deadly for her.
Macomb County has partnered with SMART bust to get seniors round trips to get their vaccines, but so far, Wayne County has not reached out to SMART for a similar program.
The family is hoping a nearby clinic will see Bigalow before the end of February.
