Massachusetts' pandemic state of emergency ends Tuesday. That comes as, this week, the number of fully vaccinated in the state is expected to clear 4 million.

Meanwhile, the latest COVID-19 variant — the so-called Delta variant — has appeared in the state. There are also still disparities in vaccination rates along racial lines.
