GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — As we get closer to all adults being eligible for a vaccine in Michigan on April 5, we continue to talk with Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Abha Gupta Varma about the difference in the vaccines and what you should know.

Dr. Abha says she knows of people who are signing up in every location for a chance to get vaccinated.
