Roughly 500 Day-One COVID-19 Vaccinations Administered at Devos Place

GRAND RAPIDS (WOOD-AM) - Around 500 people received coronavirus vaccine doses at Devos Place yesterday.

The convention center has been converted into a mass-vaccination site.

"My boy, he wants me to live a lot longer," 90-year-old Bob Carlson told WOOD-TV.

There's enough space there to vaccinate 20,000 people a day there once area health agencies get more doses.
