Detroit Health Department To Host Friends & Family Vaccination Day On Dec. 29

(CBS DETROIT) - The Detroit Health Department is hosting a Friends and Family vaccination day on Dec. 29, with a special superhero theme for the children who attend.

All individuals five years and older are welcome to attend the event to receive a vaccine or booster shot.

"We are inviting all Detroiters to be a hero and get vaccinated," said Denise Fair Razo, Chief Public Health Officer.

We want our youngest Detroiters to know how much we appreciate the decision their caregiver made to get them vaccinated and help keep everyone around them safe from COVID-19. Wednesday, Dec. 29 is Super Hero day for Detroit children who get vaccinated."
