Ask The Docs: Taking Listener Questions About Vaccines, Pandemic18:29


Here's where we stand right now on the coronavirus pandemic in Massachusetts:

A seven-day average positive test rate above 7%, with just 4% of hospital beds are free in Boston. Some 140,000 people have gotten their first vaccine dose, and 1,200 have already gotten the second, as the state's slow rollout continues.

We take listener questions with Dr. Helen Boucher, Chief of Infectious Diseases at Tufts Medical Center, and a professor at the Tufts University School of Medicine; and Dr. Joshua Barocas, an infectious diseases physician at Boston Medical Center and assistant professor of medicine at the Boston University School of Medicine.
