[ARCHIVED] Chicopee Regional Vaccine site to Shift Vaccine Appointments & Mobile Vaccine Clinic

PRESS RELEASE

The City of Chicopee Regional Vaccine site to Shift Vaccine Appointments for Efficiency and announce the start of a Mobile Vaccine Clinic


CHICOPEE, MA – May 11, 2021, the City of Chicopee Regional Vaccine Site, located at the Castle of Knights on Memorial Drive, has announced that they will be shifting the  May 13th vaccine appointments, to allow the site to run more efficiently.  The shift will affect about 20 appointments.

Any person who has booked a vaccine for May 13th will be informed of the change and will offer priority booking for the week of May 27th between 10 am until 2 pm – or have the option to book any available appointment tomorrow, May 12th.  The regional site will also offer walk-in appointments on May 12th, as long as doses are available.

 Reminder: 2nd dose vaccines will begin at the Regional site on May 27th

“We just want to do everything we can to have those people who signed up for appointments still come,” said Mayor John Vieau. “We just have to make sure we are using our resources efficiently.”  

The number of positive coronavirus cases and the spread of variants has caused increased urgency to get shots administered to as many people as possible and as efficiently as possible. The City of Chicopee has once again partnered with Chicopee & Holyoke Health Centers, Tufts Health Plan, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care to take vaccines directly into the community and set up a mobile vaccine clinic.

On May 20th and 21st, the Mobile Vaccine Clinic will be at the Chicopee Boys & Girls Club located at 580 Meadow Street to offer COVID vaccines to anyone in the surrounding neighborhoods who have had trouble accessing the available sites for whatever reason. The Mobile Clinic will return, timed appropriately to the exact location, to deliver the second dose.  To make an appointment, please call 617-904-7441, starting today.

 "Many people have had difficulties getting to a mass site to get vaccinated, and that's why we are partnering up again to bring it to them," stated Mayor Vieau. “We know that every additional vaccinated person gets us that much closer to the end of this pandemic.”
