Some of the lowest vaccination rates in Michigan are in several townships along the state’s border with Ohio and Indiana, according to a state-issued report.
The report speculates residents were vaccinated out of state and did not report it in Michigan. Those townships include Burr Oak, Colon and Nottawa in St. Joseph County.
All have large Amish communities. Kristina Dewey, health information officer at Branch-Hillsdale-St Joseph Community Health Agency, agreed with the speculation.
