Boston — The Baker-Polito Administration, in collaboration with the Museum of Science Boston and Dunkin’ today announced initiatives to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines in the Commonwealth. Massachusetts continues to be a national leader in vaccination rates with over 77% of adults having received at least one dose, and the Administration is supporting additional opportunities to drive vaccine uptake.
