Governor Snyder signed a law aimed at protecting doctor's if they say "I'm sorry" after a failed medical procedure.

Flu vaccinations are invaluable for anyone aiming to stay healthy this winter.

Dr. Dean Sienko, Interim Chief Medical Executive for the Michigan Department of Community Health, stressed the importance of vaccinations.

“It looks like this is going to be one of our worst flu seasons in the past decade. The important thing is that citizens take this seriously.”

According to Sienko, only 20% of the Michigan population has been vaccinated. He recommended that almost everyone over six months of age receive a vaccination.

“Most of the strains are on target with what was in the vaccines. Two of the three components in the vaccine are active in Michigan.”
