  • These maps show where COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy is strongest

    Boston Globe - 04/20/2021

    A poll released in March by a consortium that includes Northeastern, Harvard, Rutgers, and Northwestern universities also found Massachusetts with the lowest percentage among the states of residents who said they “would not get the COVID-19 vaccine.”

    Samuel Scarpino, an epidemiologist at Northeastern University, said it was good news that people in Massachusetts are receptive to getting the shot, but the state needs to follow through and make those vaccinations happen, as well as other vaccinations for children once they are approved.

    “It’s wonderful that we’re working with a situation where lots of people want to get the vaccine. We need to capitalize on that and make sure we all get it,” he said.
