Mobile Vaccination Clinics Coming To Boston, Fall River, And Others

CHELSEA, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Gov. Charlie Baker announced on Thursday that mobile and pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites are coming to a handful of vulnerable state communities.

Boston, Chelsea, Revere, Fall River, and New Bedford will all receive visits from mobile vaccination teams. The vaccine doses will come directly from the federal government as part of those given to the Hynes Convention Center mass vaccination site, which will be run in partnership with FEMA in the coming weeks.

Each mobile site will eventually give out around 500 doses a day. The cities were selected using the CDC's Social Vulnerability Index and because of their proximity to the Hynes. The governor said the sites will be set up in city parks or other easy-to-access locations.

The program will begin next week. Like the Hynes site, it is scheduled to run for about eight weeks.
