“For all of us, one of our great opportunities and our great challenges to get over whether its hesitancy or equity or more confidence, is the more people see this happening among their friends and their family members and co-workers, the more likely they are to sign up and say ‘you know what, I’m willing to play,'” Gov. Baker said to President Biden.

Baker explained he plans for 4.1 million people to be fully vaccinated by early June. He was also excited to see President Biden's announcement about Uber and Lyft providing free rides to vaccination sites.

"The decision to include folks like Lyft and Uber in this could make a huge difference," Baker stated. “We’re going to work really hard to make sure we get everybody who wants a vaccine, vaccinated by the fourth of July.”
