The following is a press release from the City of Framingham
FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Health Department and the Medical Reserve Corps held the City’s first COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Saturday, February 6.
Three hundred and twenty Framingham residents, and 139 nonresidents, all 75 years or older, were vaccinated for a total of 459 people. No one under the age of 75 was vaccinated, and Framingham residents were prioritized over nonresidents.
In addition to the 300 doses for February 6 clinic, the Health Department had received 100 doses as part of an initial allotment. There were also additional unused doses from the January first responder clinics. The doses from the initial allotment and the doses from the first responder clinics enabled the extra vaccinations.
Because of challenges with the State’s vaccine registration system, people who were ineligible (under 75 years old and nonresidents) could register for the City’s first public vaccine clinic.
Appointments of those who were ineligible were canceled, but many did not receive the notice from the State’s vaccine portal.
Residents who attended the clinic will receive email instructions about registering for dose two.
Registration information will be sent to the email address entered for your dose one appointment, and the registration process is the same.
More details on when residents can expect this email will be provided as we have them.
The City is working with the State to secure a second vaccine dose for nonresidents vaccinated on February 6.
At this time, the City cannot ensure a second dose for nonresidents. Nonresidents will be informed if the City can secure them a second dose.
Framingham will hold its next vaccination clinic for residents 75+ on Saturday, February 13, and announce when registration opens once it confirms the number of vaccines received.
You will not be vaccinated if you do not meet the residency and age requirements. Please do not show up at the clinic if you do not have an appointment.
