Charlie Baker slams people who ‘cut the line’ for coronavirus vaccine

Gov. Charlie Baker on Wednesday slammed congressional staffers and other people who are getting the coronavirus vaccines early, and reiterated his promise that he and his staff won’t “cut the line” for a shot.
“I don’t understand why a lot of the people who cut the line, cut it,” Baker said in response to a Herald reporter’s question at a Wednesday press conference. “I just don’t.”
“It doesn’t make any sense to me, and I think it’s inconsistent with the message we’ve all tried to send on this, which is while we recognize and understand everyone would like to be vaccinated today, there are some people who are at a far higher risk,” he said, adding that those individuals should be prioritized.
He and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito will not get the shot early, he said.
“We believe that while we work a lot, we are not — from our point of view — worthy of cutting the line,” Baker said.
The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to staff in the U.S. House of Representatives.
