Michigan Primary Care Consortium Says Vaccinations Could Save State $500M

An analysis by the Michigan Primary Care Consortium reveals the state could save $500 million if residents would vaccinate themselves against infectious diseases such as pneumonia and the flu, according to a Detroit News report.

The consortium's analysis showed specifically that for every $1 spent on adult vaccinations, approximately $20 is saved in missed work days or healthcare costs. The report is expected to be unveiled later today as work groups collaborate on recommendations to boost adult vaccinations.
