The Director of the Michigan Department of Community Health will make the official decision next week.
They say the demand for vaccine has dropped off significantly. But with the possibility of opening the door for everyone to get flu shots, health officials urge anyone in the high-risk groups who has not gotten a shot to call their local health departments.
There is vaccine available to give shots to the high-risk people, but it has to be ordered. Providers and health departments must order the doses.
If the public health order is lifted completely, anyone more than 50 years old, all health care workers, and anyone else who wants to get vaccinated can get the shot.
News Ten will have an update on the decision next week.
