Community Advocate Marlborough web iconMarlborough – The city has been receiving 100 COVID-19 vaccine doses per week, according to Mayor Arthur Vigeant. When asked by a member of the Marlborough School Committee at its Jan. 26 meeting if teacher vaccinations were going to happen in February, Vigeant explained that “there’s a real issue” because the state currently has 86,000 doses at this time. Phase 1  vaccinations in the city have been completed, according to Vigeant. However, the state has now added people ages 75 and above as a Phase 2 priority; there are 2,500 residents in that category who live in Marlborough.

With the 100 doses per week we can’t event get one-third of the (Phase 2) group done in February,” Vigeant explained. “The second group of Phase 2 that includes teachers, is going to be late February, March.”
