COVID-19 and the vaccine

We know people are anxious for information about when and where they can get vaccinated.  

Phase 2 of vaccine distribution begins on February 1st. On Wednesday, January 27th, individuals 75 or older can begin making appointments for dates February 1st or later. 

Vaccination sites can be found by clicking on the map in the link below:

This is your best resource for vaccine information. The Senior Center unfortunately has no information on when individuals in our community will be able to get vaccinated or recommendations for how to get the vaccine. 

GOOD NEWS:  The public clinics for 75+ went live Thursday. You can now access Phase II public clinics at Gillette and Fenway.
