CDC Director Rochelle Walensky to join Gov. Charlie Baker at Hynes Convention Center to tour COVID vaccination site

Today, Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito will join Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders, MEMA Director Samantha Phillips, Senator Ed Markey, Congressman Stephen Lynch, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, FEMA Administrator Robert Fenton and other local leaders to tour the FEMA mass vaccination site at the Hynes Convention Center.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will join Gov. Charlie Baker and others during a tour of the new mass COVID vaccine site at Hynes Convention Center Tuesday afternoon. You can watch it live at 1 p.m. on CBSN Boston in the video above.

Also taking part in the tour will be Sen. Ed Markey, Rep. Stephen Lynch, MEMA Director Samantha Phillips, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, and Sec. of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders. The trip comes a day after Walensky, the former chief of the division of infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and a one-time member of Baker’s reopening advisory board, said she feels a sense of “impending doom” with coronavirus cases rising in parts of the country.

“I’m going to pause here, I’m going to lose the script and I’m going to reflect on the recurring feeling I have of impending doom,” Walensky said during a briefing. “We have so much to look forward to. So much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope.

But right now I’m scared.” CBS News reported that Walensky feels some states are opening up at levels not recommended by public health officials, and she plans to speak with governors Tuesday to urge them to “buckle down on trying to refrain from opening up too fast.”
