Coronavirus Vaccine Eligibility Expanded In State


The number of people eligible to receive the Coronavirus vaccine is now greatly expanded in Massachusetts. 

The state yesterday opened appointments for the vaccine to all people 55 and older, and those with a qualifying medical condition. 

Being overweight has been added to the list of qualifying conditions, which helps to open vaccine eligibility to more than a million residents. 

Other conditions on the list include diabetes and substance abuse disorders.
