PUBLIC NOTICE: City Manager Edward M. Augustus, Jr. has ordered that all visitors and employees in municipal buildings must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, effective Thursday, August 12, 2021. More Information...

Note: Payments, vital record requests and many other services can be completed online.

Vaccination Overview

The City of Worcester led by the Department of Health & Human Services and Division of Public Health is actively engaged in a city-wide effort with community partners to administer vaccinations to isolated populations through mobile vaccine equity clinics and the homebound vaccination program. This is in addition to other agencies across the City administering vaccines including  a variety of pharmacies and health centers.

The demand for vaccination is high and we ask all residents to please be patient with the process so we can effectively distribute the vaccine following the State of Massachusetts guidelines.
