Individuals over the age of 65 and those 16 and older with two or more of certain medical conditions, including asthma, can begin booking appointments Thursday for vaccinations in the state of Massachusetts, Gov. Charlie Baker's office said in a release.
Almost 1 million individuals are now eligible for vaccines, Baker’s office said.
The governor's office said that due to the "extremely high" demand for a vaccine it could take "more than a month" for all eligible individuals to secure an appointment "unless federal supply significantly increases."
The governor's office said that the state is receiving approximately 110,000 first doses per week from the federal government.
