Vice President Harris should have been in Detroit Monday, but announced Sunday that she is postponing her trip. Her visit is a part of the Biden administration’s “month of action” leading up to the President’s challenge to see 70% of American vaccinated by July 4th.

Michigan has two counties with the lowest vaccination percentage, according to the Detroit News. The visit was an effort to rally behind vaccines. Detroit also saw flooding over the weekend that likely kept the vice president from coming.

However, Harris has not revealed why the trip was postponed or when she will try to visit again.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
