The Protect Michigan Commission has expanded with the addition of Dearborn’s Fire Chief Joseph Murray.
The commission, which is housed within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), was created with the purpose of increasing awareness about the COVID-19 vaccine, educating people within the State about the vaccine, and helping protect the health and safety of all residents.
Murray is one of 100 people appointed to the commision, which spans a public and private partnership.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve such an important role in our state,” Murray said. “The health and safety of the community is my utmost priority. Educating the public about the importance of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine plays a vital part in preserving that health and safety.”
Commission members will provide public leadership in order to emphasize the importance of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, identify any barriers to acceptance of the vaccine and develop a plan to overcome these barriers.
