(WSYM) — Half of the eligible Michiganders have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, the state said on Monday. That puts Michigan near the first step in reopening, which could allow in-person office work to resume by the end of the month.

According to the state data, 4,044,710 Michiganders have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and the state will surpass 7 million total doses administered on Monday.

“Today, Michigan will surpass seven million doses administered of the safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines,” Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a release. “We’ve put shots in arms of 1 in 2 Michiganders 16 and up and over 1 in 3 are fully vaccinated, including 2 in 3 seniors. Our rollout continues to speed up."

Last week, Whitmer and MDHHS Director Elizabeth Hertel announced a plan for reopening Michigan tied to COVID-19 vaccination rates.
