UPDATE on Covid-19 Vaccination clinic
important UPDATES information on COVID-19 vaccination clinic to be held at Berkshire East on April 16 & 17
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS Wednesday, April 14th
The Friday, April 16th vaccine clinic in Charlemont has been canceled due to the severe weather forecast. Appointments are being re-scheduled to Saturday, April 17th at the same location in Charlemont (Berkshire East Mountain Resort). Please advise any residents who have inquiries that everyone scheduled for the Friday clinic is being manually transferred to new appointments on Saturday afternoon. This process will take awhile, but at some point in the next day or so they will receive either an email or a phone call with the new appointment time. If they do not receive an email or phone call, or can’t make it on Saturday and need to cancel, please advise them to contact Amanda Doster at 413-774-3167 extension 120. FDA and CDC recommend pause on administration of the J&J vaccine.
Previous update: Sunday, April 11, 2021
This message is from the Heath Board of Health to alert you to a local and convenient vaccine clinic to be held in Charlemont at Berkshire East next weekend, April 16 and 17 from 9 am to 1 pm.
If you are 55 years old and older, or have one medical condition, or certain work, this clinic is being held for your convenience.
Registration will be on Monday April 12. As a Franklin County resident, you can be in the first group to get an appointment before registration is opened to the entire State. Be sure to check this website at noon on Monday: franklincountymavaccine.org after to find the time registration opens. About an hour before it opens, return to the website and click on the regional vaccinations link, it is the top blue box, and then click on the Berkshire East clinic. This will put you in a waiting room and you will be the first group registered. Remember, when the link goes live, it is open to the entire state so it is important to get in early.
For those of you who do not have internet or a friend with internet who can register you, call LifePath soon. That number is 413-829-9285.
These registration directions can also be found on the Charlemont town website: www.Charlemont-ma.us
Please pass this information along to your friends and relatives as we do not expect to hold another local clinic. We urge everyone as you become eligible to get your vaccination to protect yourself and everyone else.
If you have questions, please call the Heath Board of Health at 413-337-5346. Thank you.
