MDHHS responded and indicated that it had reviewed and revised its promotional materials.

EARLIER PRESS RELEASE
March 10, 2021
The coronavirus, known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), causes the COVID-19 disease. Currently, the FDA has authorized the use of three investigational COVID-19 vaccines under an emergency use authorization [“EUA”]. Federal law places conditions on the promotion of the investigational COVID-19 vaccines authorized under an EUA as these vaccines are authorized not approved and safety and efficacy studies are currently ongoing. Allison Lucas, an attorney for Michigan for Vaccine Choice who consulted with the FDA on the matter states, "Because these vaccines are unapproved and investigational, federal law provides clear restrictions on how they can be described, advertised, and promoted and also requires disclosure that the vaccines are not approved or licensed by FDA".
Michigan for Vaccine Choice understands the importance of MDHHS and its delegates disseminating information on the investigational COVID-19 vaccines. Unfortunately, the content being used by MDHHS to promote the investigational COVID-19 vaccines to the public is false and misleading and violates federal law because their content:
lacks the FDA disclosures required of EUA products;
falsely claims that the investigational COVID-19 vaccines are approved by FDA;
makes false claims regarding the EUA vaccine safety process;
falsely claims the investigational COVID-19 vaccines prevent spread of SARS-CoV-2; and
makes false claims regarding the safety and efficacy of the investigational COVID-19 vaccines.
Michigan For Vaccine Choice issued a letter, through its attorney, to Michigan officials including MDHHS on March 9, 2021, making them aware of the violations and requesting that the state immediately remove all false and/or misleading COVID-19 vaccine materials and publicly issue corrections within five business days.
Michigan for Vaccine Choice believes that Michigan citizens deserve clear, truthful, transparent, and lawful COVID-19 vaccine information so that each individual can make informed decisions regarding vaccination.
What Is Vaccine Choice?
Vaccine mandates set a precedent for unwanted medical and bio interventions. Mandates also interfere with your ability to receive individualized medical and healthcare due to the one-size-fits-all protocol.
While most people follow the vaccine schedule recommended by the CDC, they also realize the importance of vaccine choice at school, work, and now travel and more.
Infants and children can receive up to 8 shots in a single office visit. Some parents choose to separate or delay those shots across a few visits rather than receiving them all at once.
Ever skip the flu shot?
If so, you have practiced vaccine choice and may not have even realized it. MVC members also reserve the right to choose which shots to accept or decline.
Parents who witness a vaccine injury typically opt out of future doses and additional vaccines. Many "ex-vaxxers" were originally fully following the vaccine schedule.
