VACCINE ROLLOUT PHASE | Starting today, tens of thousands Michiganders are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Those eligible include individuals 65 and older, as well as first responders, teachers, and childcare workers. But health officials say it's unlikely there will be enough vaccine to initially meet the demand. 

GRAND RAPIDS CRASH | One person was arrested early Monday morning after trying to flee from police officers attempting a traffic stop and crashing into a pole. Authorities said the driver only suffered minor injuries and that not yet known what charges that person will face. 

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT | House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment. In a letter to Pence, she gave him 24 hours to respond -- and if he doesn't -- Pelosi would introduce the articles of impeachment on the House floor. Invoking the 25th Amendment would begin the process of removing the president from office. 

CAPITOL GUN BAN | Concerns over security at Michigan’s Capitol have reignited after the U.S. Capitol came under attack by a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters last week. Since last spring when armed protesters entered the building and yelled at members of security outside the legislative chambers to be let inside, calls to ban firearms in the statehouse have been made, but no changes have come in weapons policies. 

FORECAST | The weather pattern remains rather quiet until later this week. Get the full forecast here.
