LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan will begin issuing coronavirus vaccines to seniors and front-line workers such as teachers and police next week, state officials said Wednesday while announcing accelerated access for people who are at least 65 years old.

The state had planned to next immunize people 75 and older and essential workers including first responders, prison guards and child care providers. But residents age 65 to 74 will be included, too.

"Every shot in the arm is a step closer to ending this pandemic," Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said.
