Boston To Roll Out Mobile Vaccine Clinics

Mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics could start in Boston as soon as next week, aiming to first target city-run homes for seniors and people with disabilities.

Boston Health and Human Services Chief Marty Martinez said Thursday that the city will get more of those operating as fast as it can.

"It's complicated," Martinez said. "You have to have doses, you have to be able to store them, you have to be able to make sure that you have a pharmacist that can do the leg work and make sure that you have someone who can monitor folks. For those folks who've been vaccinated, you know you wait 15 to 30 minutes to be observed and we need to make sure that can happen."

The mobile clinics would be in addition to the roughly 20 vaccine sites in the city now.
