Another week, another massive failing of the state's vaccine rollout.

While the infection numbers are looking better, Gov. Baker acknowledges the vaccine appointment sign-up process isn't going well. With state lawmakers calling for a vaccine oversight hearing on Beacon Hill next week, what does that mean for Baker's political future? Also, we remember Doris Bunte, the first Black woman elected to the State House of Representatives, and look at the fallout from the second senate acquittal for former president Donald Trump.

We break it all down in our Friday Week in Review with Renee Landers, professor of Law and Director of the Health Law Concentration at Suffolk University, and Jim Stergios, executive director of the Pioneer Institute.

This program aired on February 19, 2021.
