Massachusetts educators are expected to be offered their first doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as February as part of the second phase in the state’s vaccination plan, state officials said Wednesday as they unveiled their timeline.
Broken into three phases, Massachusetts’ COVID-19 vaccination process is slated to begin as soon as a vaccine has been approved by federal regulators and vaccine doses are received by the state.
