Lowell Community Health Center, which serves about half the population of Lowell in some capacity, has employed multiple strategies in the Greater Lowell area to make it easy for people to get their COVID-19 vaccines, particularly those in marginalized groups.
State Rep. Vanna Howard, backed by 34 other legislators, sent a letter to Gov. Baker urging him to “immediately implement a targeted strategy to leverage our community health care organizations’ expertise and experience,” instead of his current strategy of prioritizing the state’s six mass vaccination sites.
Now, hope has a name. It is Fernando. Yesterday, we received a dose of something we all need these days: hope. We began providing the first doses of the COVID vaccine to our patients 75+. We are excited by the realization that more and more patients will be vaccinated every day!
Información importante sobre la vacuna contra el COVID-19 Para nuestros pacientes de 75 años o más: A partir del 1 de febrero, son elegibles para recibir gratis la vacuna contra el COVID-19. Estaremos en contacto con usted próximamente con más detalles sobre cómo hacer una cita. Por favor continúe protegiéndose siguiendo las medidas para cubrirse la cara, distanciarse socialmente y lavarse las manos.
