FRAMINGHAM – Late Thursday, the City confirmed it had Secured 300 Doses of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine for Framingham Residents 75 years of age and older and immediately began planning for a vaccination clinic Saturday, February 6, (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.) at Keefe Vocational Technical High School, 750 Winter Street, Framingham, MA 01702:

While City was setting up the clinic on the State’s website, late Thursday night, individuals who were viewing available clinics, were able to register for the Framingham clinic. Because this is a new system, it was unclear that the appointments would appear live as the City added to the site.

At this time, all appointments have been secured. All registrants are reviewed to ensure they are eligible – 75 and older and reside in Framingham. The City will continue to host ongoing clinics as vaccines are available.

Weekly, municipalities can request vaccines from the State (100-300 doses a week). For the February 6 clinic, the City will vaccinate 300 residents who live in the City of Framingham, who are age 75 years or older regardless of immigration status.
