The Berkshire Eagle reports, Thursday, when Berkshire Community College would normally have been bustling with vaccinators, the gym sat empty.“

With only a handful of first doses to give out, Berkshire vaccine coordinators held just one clinic in Pittsfield this week. The site, which could administer more than 10,000 vaccines each week, has seen its inoculations slow to a trickle, as the commonwealth channels doses into mass vaccination sites concentrated in eastern Massachusetts.

 Regional vaccine collaboratives in the Berkshires and around the state say the commonwealth is underutilizing them, despite their capacity to run high-output clinics, and leaving behind residents who live far from mass vaccination sites.
The same pattern appears to be playing out in other corners of the state, with cutoffs reported earlier this month by the Northampton regional collaborative.
