A new poll finds a majority of Massachusetts residents say they are likely to get a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 when one becomes available.

             But the survey conducted by Western New England University found a third of the people said they were unlikely to get the vaccine citing concerns about the approval process and possible side effects.

             WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Tim Vercellotti, director of the Western New England University Polling Institute.
