The January 26th event was a webinar because venues that typically host events for America’s Future are closed due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions. That event entitled, Should Detroiters Get The COVID-19 Vaccine? Featured speakers who addressed the medical benefits of the vaccine and how many Detroiters are mistrustful of large-scale vaccination efforts.
