Today's Globe: Caritas talks, vaccination rates, Janet Marzilli

The Archdiocese of Boston is in talks with Catholic Health Initiatives, a Catholic hospital chain based in Denver, to have it take over the church's ailing Caritas Christi Health Care system, according to three healthcare industry officials with knowledge of the discussions.

Massachusetts led all states, and Boston topped all major cities nationwide in the percentage of young children who received disease-fighting vaccinations last year, according to figures released yesterday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mrs. Marzilli, who had lived in Arlington for decades, died Aug. 22 in Cape Cod Hospital of complications from multiple sclerosis. She was 74 and had lived the past several years in Marstons Mills.
