The Town of Concord’s Emergency Management Staff and Health Officials have been hard at work planning for the rollout of the much anticipated COVID-19 vaccine here in Concord. We understand that many people are anxiously awaiting information about when vaccines will be made available and where they will be able to obtain them. Please know that the Town is working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) who will determine when vaccines will become available to different segments of the public and how it will be made available to these groups. This plan, with timelines for arrival of the vaccine can be found on the MDPH webpage.
The Town has partnered with the towns of Bedford, Carlisle, Lincoln, Maynard, and Sudbury for a Phase 1 Regional COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for first responders vaccination clinic in the participating towns. This vaccination clinic will take place at the Concord Carlisle Regional High School in an outdoor temporary structure in the next few weeks.
As information becomes available, the Town will send out notifications and updates via News and Notices, the Town’s COVID-19 webpage, and on social media.
Please know, the Town does not have the ability to purchase additional vaccines or speed up the process. The phased approach which is being followed across the State has been developed by medical and health professionals at MPDH to best deliver the vaccine in a coordinated effort across the State. We want to remind you to wear a mask whenever outside of your home, wash your hands frequently, avoid gatherings, and continue to take precautions as we continually battle this virus.
