COVID- 19 Response and Prevention
The Senior Center will remain closed until we can ensure the safety of our members. Until we reopen, we sincerely hope our member's stay safe and healthy.
Yesterday, the Baker-Polito Administration announced individuals ages 65 and over and those with 2+ certain medical conditions, including Asthma, can visit www.mass.gov/covidvaccine to start booking an appointment for vaccine beginning February 18th. It was also announced that effective the week of March 1, the State will no longer be providing first dose vaccines to Stoneham, and most other municipalities. The State is streamlining the vaccine distribution process and placing an emphasis on mass vaccination sites and regionalized clinics. There is also a growing number of pharmacies and other retail locations administering vaccines in Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, this means that the Town of Stoneham will NOT be able to schedule first-dose vaccination clinics in Stoneham and that residents will need to seek the vaccine elsewhere. Please visit the State’s Vaccine Finder website to search for other vaccine opportunities.
People with no computer access can call 2-1-1 or 877-211-6277 for assistance finding an appointment.
