SOMERVILLE, MASS. (WHDH) - The Somerville Board of Health voted against a vaccine mandate for certain establishments in the city.

The Somerville Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday that the Board of Health voted two to 1 against the adoption of the mandate.

The mandate would have required people to show proof of vaccination when entering businesses such as restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, and indoor gyms.

A similar vaccine mandate went into effect in Boston last Saturday.
