Mobile vaccine clinic focuses on Black, Latino residents
A mobile vaccination effort that is slated to administer 500 COVID-19 immunizations per day rolled into East Boston on Saturday.
The “Mobile Vax” buses are a joint effort of Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care to focus vaccination efforts on Black, Latino and non-English speaking communities in Massachusetts.
Saturday’s vaccinations were completed in Central Square Park in East Boston. Stops in Chelsea, Holyoke and Chicopee are planned for the next several weeks.
Appointments are required; community organizers are spreading the word by calling residents and going door-to-door in target areas.
Massachusetts is averaging about 1,600 new COVID-19 cases
