NEWS on COVID-19 in Massachusetts: Charlie Baker: Massachusetts to receive fewer Pfizer coronavirus vaccine doses than initially expected

“Massachusetts now expects to receive 20% fewer doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine this month than initially expected, officials said Friday, expressing frustration while acknowledging the ‘ever-changing’ nature of the historic rollout.

Gov. Charlie Baker said the feds alerted the state’s command center that the next few shipments of the Pfizer vaccine would include 42,900 doses instead of the just more than 59,000 the state had anticipated, though ‘at this time it’s not clear to us why the shipment amounts have been adjusted.’ The same scenario is playing out in other states.

‘We’re certainly frustrated that we won’t be receiving the amount that we expected in the first wave,’ Baker said in a Friday press conference at the State House. ‘We’re working to get clarity on what this means, why it happens and how that bump will be dealt with along the way.’”
