BOSTON – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Hynes Convention Center’s mass vaccination site in Boston today, April 6.
Gov. Baker, 64, had repeatedly said he would wait his turn to get the vaccine.
The Governor became eligible for the vaccine on March 22.
“I preregistered, was notified last week that I was now eligible to make an appointment, and I did. And so far, I feel great,” said the Governor.
He received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and is scheduled to receive his second shot in 21 days.
“The process was quick and easy and I feel fine,” Gov. Baker said.
