BOSTON – Over the weekend, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control announced more than 5 million Americans did not get their second dose of the COVID vaccine when scheduled.

But Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said “north of 99%” of the state’s residents have received their second shot of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID vaccine.

The CDC data did not take into account individuals who received their first shot at one location and then received their second vaccine 3 or 4 weeks later in a different location.

Individuals who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, should get a second shot 21 days later.

Individuals who received the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, should get a second shot 28 days later.

A U.S. Health & Human Services survey showed Massachusetts has some of the lowest rates of vaccine hesitancy in the country.

The Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Command Center told the Boston Globe Tuesday that more than 99% of Massachusetts residents had indeed received a second dose within the recommended six weeks, after the first dose.
