Senator Becca Rausch:
"Last month I filed a bill to provide paid time off for parents and caregivers taking children to COVID-19 vaccination appointments; today that provision is headed to the governor's desk to be signed into law. We cannot get to the other side of this pandemic without widespread vaccination, and we cannot force families to choose between putting food on the table and providing their children with life-saving preventive care. I am so proud that my proposal to uplift Massachusetts families was included in the Legislature's COVID emergency paid sick leave extension, and I remain fervently committed to advancing the data-driven public health policies we need to safeguard our communities.
