Saginaw Valley State University will be hosting a large one-day COVID-19 vaccine event to help those underserved.
Meijer Pharmacy will be administering first doses of the vaccine to about 2,000 people on Thursday, Feb. 18.
The university said this is the largest single-day vaccine event to date in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
These doses came directly from the federal government to help get more residents over the age of 65 vaccinated sooner.
SVSU nursing and social work staff helped with outreach for the event by contacting local agencies to find under-served populations.
