Gov. Ned Lamont says the state is moving to an age-based vaccine rollout plan. That means essential workers and those with comorbidities are no longer next in line -- except, that is, for teachers and child care workers.

To talk about the implications of this move, Gregg Gonsalves, professor of epidemiology at Yale University School of Public Health, joined Connecticut Public Radio’s All Things Considered. He gave his opinions on whether this move -- from a public health perspective -- is the right thing to do.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
