BOSTON, MA (WGGB/WSHM)-- Governor Baker is scheduled to provide an update on COVID-19 vaccinations in the Bay State Monday morning.
In December, the state set a goal to vaccinate at least 4.1 million people through a series of phases, starting with health care workers and the most vulnerable populations.
Governor Baker and Lt. Karyn Polito will host a press conference from the State House at 10 a.m. with Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders and Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Disaster Medicine Director Dr. Paul Biddinger.
They are expected to discuss the state's vaccination progress in more detail and provide information on the next phase of vaccination clinics that will pivot to reach people through smaller scale operation focusing on particular communities or populations.
Massachusetts is a national leader in vaccine distribution.
Western Mass News will be streaming the governor's press conference live on-air as well as on the free Western Mass News app.
