Mercy Anampiu, Director of Community Health Programs,and Beth Hale, Chief of Clinical Services, talk about COVID-19 on “African Diaspora Connects.” Host Kibathi Gaturu reminds us all that “COVID is real.” And he should know, as he recently recovered after contracting COVID and believes he contracted it during a night out with friends.
On Saturday, January 9, 2021 and Saturday, January 23, 2021, we will be accepting walk-in flu vaccines for 18 years and older from 9am-2pm at the Health Center (161 Jackson Street, Lowell). No appointment needed.
“Community health organizations, including Lowell Community Health Center, Greater Lowell Health Alliance, and Lowell General Hospital, are working with trusted community aid organizations in a unified effort to distribute timely and accurate information about the vaccine rollout.”
We were thrilled to begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to our front-line staff in December, but it is not yet available to patients. We will let patients know when and how to get the vaccine when it does become available at Lowell CHC. Please do not call the health center with questions about the vaccine. Please check our COVID-19 page regularly for updates about vaccine availability and other helpful resources related to the virus.
Read comments from Lowell CHC Director of Clinical Services, Elizabeth Hale, in this recent piece on WBUR. “So far in Massachusetts, the pace of vaccinating residents against COVID-19 is way behind supplies of coronavirus vaccines. The latest update Monday from Gov. Charlie Baker shows about 40% of the doses delivered to Massachusetts have been injected and, state data released last week shows, 92% have gone to hospital staff.”
