BOSTON – More healthcare workers in Massachusetts can now get the coronavirus vaccine. Governor Charlie Baker announced Thursday that all groups in Phase 1 of the state vaccination schedule are immediately eligible for the shot.
“Today we are moving forward with the process of including all groups in Phase 1 of the state vaccination plan, including home carers and non-covid-faced health workers,” he said. “These groups are now eligible to receive vaccines.”
The state has already begun vaccinating coronavirus health care workers, first responders, and community care workers such as prisons and emergency shelters.
