BOSTON (CBS) — The state is partnering with CVS Health and Walgreens to distribute the COVID vaccine, starting with eligible Phase One residents. Starting this week, 10,000 vaccine doses will be delivered to at least 15 pharmacies.
According to the Baker administration, Massachusetts is one of the first states to team up with retail pharmacies.READ MORE: I-Team: Nora Baston To Be Named New Boston Police Commissioner
The locations are in Greenfield, Fall River, Salem, South Yarmouth, Pittsfield, Lee, Holden, Gardner, Hyannis, Mashpee, Somerset, Fairhaven, Haverhill, Saugus, and Danvers. They were picked because these areas currently have “less access to convenient vaccine sites,” the state said.READ MORE: Ex-Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia Found Guilty Of 21 Charges In Corruption Trial
