Vaccinations begin at Massachusetts long-term care facility, a COVID hot spot
Staff and residents of Holyoke Soldiers' Home in Holyoke, Massachusetts, started receiving COVID-19 vaccinations Tuesday morning.
Staff looked on as the first person -- 78-year-old man U.S. Air Force Veteran Robert Aucoin -- was inoculated.
The long-term care facility has suffered one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the country. In the spring, 76 veterans who lived at the home died of the virus. A resident who had been living in an off-site nursing facility since April died earlier this month.
Two former top administrators pleaded not guilty to criminal negligence charges connected to the residents' deaths, WCVB reported.
