Democrats in general, especially Democratic women, are much more likely than Republicans to block or unfriend people on social media over political disagreements, according to a new study. The study , which was conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, found that 24 percent of Democrats who use social media said that they blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone after the election because of political differences.

Governor Charlie Baker said it is because so many, 45,000, had already been reserved for second doses. He toured a vaccination site at a Senior Center in Lawrence, where outreach workers say competing for appointments online…often isn’t an option. “Not everybody’s reading on internet and making appointments, so I think by coming to people we are reducing one of the biggest barriers just making appointments,” said Amy Bositis.
