News Roundup: Vaccinations Up, But COVID Case Numbers Rise, Too

S Junker

Good news, bad news this week. The Cape region leads the state for its 75-and-older vaccination rate, and the number of vaccines it’s receiving to give out has tripled. Not so good: coronavirus case numbers are rising again. Also, this week a new state timeline makes everyone eligible for a vaccine by April 19th.

We have those stories and more on the local news roundup, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Sam Houghton; George Brennan from the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Maia Coleman of the Vineyard Gazette; CAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff.
