COVID-19 Vaccine Update
The local Watertown Health Department clinics are over for now due to changes in the Commonwealth’s vaccine distribution process. Please call the Mass Vaccines Hotline at 2-1-1 or visit https://www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine for information about vaccine sites, age group eligibility, and companion vaccine sites. Please ask your families or friends who are computer-savvy to assist you with scheduling an appointment at area clinics.
Kindly remember that we are still in a pandemic, and not everyone is vaccinated. Keep your distance from others. Wear your masks and wash your hands. The vaccine is 2 doses, spread weeks apart. We must keep vigilant about keeping ourselves and others safe. We’re in this together.
