BOSTON (WWLP) – Massachusetts is unexpectedly getting 8,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses this week.
The state wasn’t planning to receive any more doses of the single-shot vaccine until the end of the month.
However, the 8,000 doses come as part of this week’s shipment of a total of 170,000 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine. That total does not include doses supplied through federal pharmacy programs.
That’s a small increase in supply over what we’ve been getting in recent weeks.
