Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett Health Department in partnership with Cataldo EMS will be administering COVID-19 vaccines on Saturday, February 6, and Sunday, February 7, between 9am-5pm at Pope John XXIII High School located at 888 Broadway.
Vaccines will be distributed to Everett residents only ages 75 and over.
“The City will be administering vaccines to our seniors to protect them from COVID-19,” said Mayor DeMaria. “I want to ensure that all seniors will have access to the vaccine during these challenging times. Protecting our most vulnerable population is our highest priority as we enter the next phase of distribution. I will continue to advocate until our entire community has received the vaccine.”
Seniors are required to make an appointment to receive the vaccine. Appointments can be made online at https://www.maimmunizations.org/ beginning on Monday, February 1 at 8 a.m. For any questions, please contact 3-1-1.
Upon arrival at the vaccination site, seniors are required to provide proof of age with any government-issued ID. Because Everett is considered a high impact community, the City is receiving 400 doses of the vaccine per week. Distribution of the vaccine is based upon availability from the Commonwealth.
Vaccines will be administered in the school’s cafeteria on the first floor. Seniors are asked to enter through the rear entrance that can be accessed from Cameron Street. After the vaccine is administered, an appointment will be made for the second dose. It is important for those who get tested to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing.
Seniors who make an appointment to receive a vaccine are eligible for free transportation services through Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES). To make an appointment for a ride, please contact MVES at 781-324-7705.
