WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Speaking from Family Health Center of Worcester on Monday, Gov. Charlie Baker told reporters that 2 million people would be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of the week.
Gov. Baker was in Worcester to detail the vaccination efforts of health centers like Family Health Center. The state had fully vaccinated 1,789,004 people as of Monday afternoon.
During the press conference, Gov. Baker said Massachusetts was the first state with over 5 million people to get at least one dose of the vaccine to more than half of its adult population.
However, the state will be seeing far less of the Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine this week, mostly because of a problem at a Johnson & Johnson plant in Baltimore.
The state has received 5,214,860 doses of all the COVID-19 vaccines combined.
