Getting Your Vaccine Means Getting Your Life Back [[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]]

Today I had the honor of sitting down with Denise Fair, Chief Public Health Officer for the City of Detroit-Detroit Health Department about the new neighborhood initiative to vaccinate 70% of Detroiters.

We discussed the importance of reaching that goal, how it will allow us to get our lives back and spend time with our loved ones. Fair took us to church as we discussed how our community can perish from a lack of knowledge (It’s in the word y’all, Hosea 4:6), and is glad to be able to share with our listeners that  everyone needs to do their part, and Detroit is doing everything they can to make it easier and more convenient.

I also celebrated my “fully vaccinated day” (two weeks after my 2nd dose) with a dance!
