Delayed Vaccine Doses Arrive in Massachusetts
The Berkshire Eagle reports COVID-19 vaccine doses delayed by weather have made it to Massachusetts, though local vaccine coordinators have not yet received confirmation of their weekly allocation.
Because of the delay, the Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative has not added additional clinic appointments for next week. Coordinators say they will open up slots once the state reports their allotment.
At least some of the vaccine doses allotted to Massachusetts this week were delayed by weather conditions in the southern part of the country, but the state’s COVID-19 Command Center confirmed Friday afternoon that 135,025 doses had arrived to the commonwealth and that scheduled appointments would not have to be canceled.
In the Berkshires, Saturday’s first-dose clinics, and second-dose clinics scheduled for early next week, do not appear to have been impacted by the delay.
