Sen. Cindy F. Friedman (D-Arlington) has been invited to join the state’s Covid-19 Vaccine Advisory Group, created to advance the Baker administration’s efforts to prepare for the distribution of a safe and effective vaccine once it becomes available.

“I'm honored to have been asked to join the advisory group, and am eager to collaborate with fellow members to support the planning process already underway,” said Friedman, Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing in an Oct. 9 news release. “As we prepare for the arrival of a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine, we must ensure that we can distribute and administer it safely and equitably across the Commonwealth – and I look forward to being part of that conversation.”

 Comprising medical professionals, public-health experts, elected officials, community leaders and infectious-disease specialists, the Covid-19 Vaccine Advisory Group will advise the administration – including the state Department of Public Health and the Covid-19 Command Center – on communication, distribution, and equity issues relating to a Covid-19 vaccine.

Friedman represents the 4th Middlesex district, which includes Arlington, Billerica, Burlington, Woburn and precincts 1-2 and 4-7 in Lexington.
