About 400,000 teachers, childcare workers and school staff in Massachusetts will be eligible to sign up for vaccine appointments starting March 11, Gov. Charlie Baker announced at a news conference Wednesday.
There will be specified days designated for them, according to the governor.
A celebratory “YES!” could be heard in response from Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, who was also at the news conference held at West Parish Elementary School.
The state of Massachusetts has received 2 million vaccine doses and has administered 1.8 million so far, getting six doses out of a vile instead of five doses, Baker said.
Baker added that Tuesday was the first day in “I don’t know how long” that there has been zero new cases in long-term care facilities.
