BOSTON (CBS) – Dr Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will join the government of Charlie Baker and others during a tour of the new COVID mass vaccination facility at the Hynes Convention Center on Tuesday afternoon
The tour will also include Sen Ed Markey, Rep. Stephen Lynch, MEMA Director Samantha Phillips, Lt Gov Karyn Polito and Sec for Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders

The trip comes a day after Walensky, former director of the infectious diseases division at Massachusetts General Hospital and one-time member of the advisory board for the reopening of Baker, felt the feeling of “impending doom” with coronavirus cases increasing in parts of the country

“I’m going to pause here, I’m going to lose the script and I’m going to think about the recurring feeling I have before the impending doom,” Walensky said during a briefing. “We can be very happy. So much promise and potential where we are, and so much to hope for But right now I’m scared ”

CBS News reported that Walensky believes some states are opening up at levels not recommended by public health officials and she plans to speak to governors on Tuesday to urge them, ” to try not to open too quickly ”
