News Roundup: Where Is the Cape's Mass Vaccination Site?; Machine Gun Range Comments Made Public

Cape officials are asking why the region, with its disproportionatly older population, has no mass vaccination site. The county and towns are struggling to accommodate demand for the vaccine. Meanwhile, a new report calls for urgent action on ocean acidification, and the Army National Guard releases the public comments (overwhelmingly negative) it received about its proposed 8-lane machine gun range. 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; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Maia Coleman of the Vineyard Gazette; CAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff.
