COVID-19 Vaccination Opportunities this Holiday Season
Help keep your family, neighbors and community safe from COVID-19 with these resources
COVID cases are at record highs over the last few weeks, as you know, and so we would like to share some updates for you about ways you can help reduce the spread in your communities:
- As of Friday, the first round of Vax Bus Clinics at schools will be over (and the second round for Pioneer). An updated flyer with the next round of clinics is attached. Please feel free to share these, but please note the following helpful information:
- All kinds of vaccines are available at each of these vaccine clinics, if people pre-register for the kind they want using the link on the flyer.
- There is currently no walk-in capacity at these clinics. If and when there are extras near the end of each clinic, the FRCOG will post that on our Facebook page.
- A reminder that FRCOG does not run these clinics, so cannot make any registration changes, but people will get emailed or texted confirmation notices and they can change them by following the link in that email/text.
- Attached is also a flyer with information about how to CALL to make an appointment for a booster or first dose at a pharmacy here in Franklin County, for those without internet.
- Homebound vaccination is available through a number of different venues – including the state homebound covid vaccine program at 833-983-0485. In addition, for the 16 member towns of CPHS, the Public Health Nurses are compiling a list of people for whom it really hard to get a COVID booster, such as homebound and vulnerable people without transportation or family to help. Because of vaccine packaging and handling constraints they need to be able to give 20 shots in 12 hours. Therefore, they are taking names, without being able to promise a set date, and will organize COVID vaccine days for homebound people as they are able. Contact Meg Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lisa White at email@example.com if you have a name for that list.
- Please consider downloading Mass Notify, the cell phone app that anonymously allows people to find out if they were exposed to COVID.
- Please share this information about how to gather safely during the winter months.
- Finally, a reminder to keep telling people about these useful links: www.franklincountymavaccine.org and https://frcog.org/covid-testing-options/ -- we update these pages weekly, and they have a lot of good information about where and how to get tested and vaccinated.
Thanks for all your continued work to keep the residents of our region safe!
