Brookline Department Of Public Health Shares CoViD-19 Vaccination Distribution Update

153

Health Commissioner Dr. Swannie Jett wishes to provide an update on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.

As of Monday, February 01, 2021, residents who are age 75 and older are now eligible to receive the vaccine. Those eligible to receive the vaccine can request an appointment at a nearby vaccine location online here.

Due to the high demand and limited supply, appointments may take several weeks to schedule. Appointments will be made available based on the supply from the federal government and will be added on a rolling basis.

Information on how to prepare for your appointment once it is scheduled, including the items you will need to bring with you, can be found here. Residents are also reminded that they will need to schedule an appointment for the required second dose of the vaccine following their first appointment.

Mass vaccination sites have been announced at the following locations:

Gillette Stadium, Foxborough. This site is currently accepting appointments. Eastfield Mall, Springfield. This site is currently accepting appointments.

Fenway Park, Boston. Opening Monday, February 01, 2021. Double Tree Hilton Hotel, Danvers. Opening Wednesday, February 03, 2021, Reggie Lewis Center, Boston. Opening next week, exact date to be announced. At this time, supply of the vaccine is limited. Public health offices are working diligently to identify ways to expand access to the vaccine and prepare to host eventual community vaccine clinics in Brookline. Once the vaccine is available for distribution by the Town, staff at the Call Center will be available to assist residents with the registration process.

Public health officials will continue to share updates as more residents become eligible to receive the vaccine. To view the full distribution timeline, click here.
