For Immediate Release: 10/12/2021 2:30 pm

With the approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 Booster, the City of Worcester’s Department of Health of Human Services is administering booster shots to residents at its mobile vaccination clinics.

The booster, a safe and effective way to reduce the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death as the result of the COVID-19 virus and the Delta variant, is available every Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Main Branch of the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square.

For a list of other upcoming clinics, visit www.worcesterma.gov/coronavirus/vaccination. Grocery store gift cards are provided at all clinics for those receiving a first or second dose.

Booster shots are currently being administered for Pfizer only, and are available to individuals 65 years of age and older, 18-64 of age at risk for severe COVID-19 due to underlying medical conditions, and 18-64 of age at increased risk for COVID-19 because of occupational or institutional settings. These individuals must have previously received the Pfizer vaccine, and are eligible for a booster at least 6 months after receiving their second dose.

In addition to mobile clinics in Worcester, locations for vaccinations and booster shots, including more than 460 retail pharmacies, can be found at vaxfinder.mass.gov.
