We are monitoring the success of these vaccination strategies locally and we stand ready to deliver vaccines as needed. Timeline, vaccination options and group assignments are all determined at the state level. Our understanding of the specific vaccination solutions is updated several times a week, and like us, you should monitor the commonwealth’s website. As soon as more information is available, we will communicate it to the public.
