The City of Woburn was approved by the MA Dept. of Public Health to administer the COVID-19 vaccine at the Woburn Senior Center to provide a convenient location for our residents to get vaccinated.

To date, the City of Woburn’s Board of Health successfully vaccinated our first responders and more than 1000 individuals over the age of 75.

On February 18, 2021, the State announced that in order to streamline the process to meet the challenge of vaccinating eligible residents, they would focus on high capacity vaccination sites to ensure efficiency and economies of scale. To that end, the State stopped providing vaccine for municipal clinics.

If the policy to reduce our role in the distribution of vaccines changes, the city of Woburn, the Board of Health and the MRC stand ready and are prepared to resume our vaccine clinics at the Senior Center , and continue being a strong partner with the Commonwealth with the shared goal of vaccinating all of our residents.

Until that change occurs, we are strongly encouraging all residents to utilize Mass vaccination sites , their primary care physicians and retail pharmacies to receive the vaccine.

To schedule an appointment, register online at one of the State identified vaccination locations.

For scheduling assistance please call 2-1-1 or (877) 211-6277.


WHERE CAN I GET THE VACCINE

The Commonwealth has been working closely with health care providers, local officials, pharmacies, and others to setup COVID-19 vaccination locations across the State.

The State has provided a map of current vaccination locations that is updated frequently:
