We're stillseeing a lot of hesitancy from some ofthat middle age group to sign up atthis point in time, the state is nowadding three sites on the Cape to thestates pre registration system.

This isgoing to be a great way of streamliningthe whole operation, which healthofficials say could make the process ofgetting fully vaccinated easier.
