BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker is scheduled to receive his COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday.

The Republican governor will get his shot at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston at about 2:30 p.m., according to a statement from his office.

Baker, 64, has repeatedly said that he would not move to the head of the vaccination line, but would instead wait until he was eligible under his administration’s three-phase rollout. The governor, who became eligible on March 22, has said he preregistered to get vaccinated at one of the state’s seven mass vaccination sites.

Massachusetts on Monday opened vaccine eligibility to residents age 55 and older, as well as to all adults with one of several medical conditions that puts them at greater risk from the disease.

The Hynes site opened last month to replace a mass vaccination site at Fenway Park, which closed because it was needed for the 2021 Red Sox season.

CIC Health, which is running the site, said last month that the two-shot Pfizer vaccine will be administered at the Hynes, subject to change depending on vaccine availability.

Baker’s office did not say which vaccine said he would receive.
