Vaccination Overview

The City of Worcester led by the Department of Health & Human Services and Division of Public Health receives and distributes approximately 975 vaccinations per week at the City's Emergency Distribution Center currently operating out of the Worcester Senior Center and through mobile clinics for congregate care settings and house-bound seniors.
