4 Proposals to Improve the Massachusetts Vaccine Rollout
DeCosta-Klipa, N. (2021). 4 Proposals to Improve the Massachusetts Vaccine Rollout. Boston Globe.
This newspaper article describes strategies for supporting equitable vaccine access in Massachusetts. It includes considerations for a “one-stop” appointment portal and phone hotline to streamline registration and improve access for seniors and others struggling with technology; a pre-registration system so people could register and then be notified when an appointment was available, instead of having to check back repeatedly for open appointments; and mobile vaccination sites staffed by medical professionals and community workers to bring vaccines to communities with high case counts.
