On February 1, 2021, Whittier Street Health Center began operating COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics on the second floor of its main facility at 1290 Tremont Street in Roxbury, and the Blue Hill Ave Satellite Clinic at 278 Blue Hill Ave in North Dorchester.

Vaccinations are provided by appointment only and as supplies are available; we do not accept walk-in appointments. Please note that the vaccine is only available at this time to individuals who meet the criteria for the current phase of the Commonwealth vaccine distribution plan. For the latest information see: .

*Mobile Vaccine Clinics Offered by Whittier Street Health Center


Whittier is employing its mobile health vans to bring the vaccine to seniors and others at high risk for COVID-19. Whittier is collaborating with its housing, faith-based and community partners to host Mobile Vaccination Clinics at their sites. For an up-to-date schedule of where and when these clinics will be offered, please click on the link for more information.

* Important COVID-19 Testing Update


Please note that, as of February 1, 2021, Whittier’s Mobile Health Vans will no longer be offering COVID testing at neighborhood locations in Boston. Instead, once we receive adequate supplies of the vaccine, Whittier will use the Vans to provide the vaccine to residents of underserved communities, and to resume their original mission of bringing other vital health care services to these communities. Please check our website regularly for information about where the Vans will be offering vaccinations or other services.

Whittier will continue to offer free COVID-19 Testing outside its main facility at 1290 Tremont Street. To learn more about testing and hours of operation, please click on the quick link for more information.

* Contact Tracing at Whittier Street Health Center


Whittier will continue its contact tracing work with the MA Community Tracing Collaborative, a partnership between the MA COVID-19 Command Center, the Department of Public Health, the Commonwealth Insurance Connector Authority, Partners in Health, and community health centers. Contact tracing, which entails identifying and contacting individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 so they can isolate/self-quarantine to prevent further spread, has proven an essential tool during the pandemic.

Contact tracing at Whittier is led by its Infectious Diseases and Special Populations and Community Relations teams, drawing on their experience with contact tracing in the area of HIV, STI, and Hepatitis C transmission. The team is multi-cultural, multi-lingual and reflects the population served. Both testing and contact tracing are vital parts of the federal, state and city recovery plans and strategies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Massachusetts.

We continue to provide in-person medical, behavioral health, dental, eye care and social services, ensuring compliance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We also provide telehealth medical, behavioral and group visits. Please call 617/427-1000 or visit our website to make appointments for any of these services.

We continue to offer our Flu Vaccine Clinic and encourage all to get a flu vaccine. Please click on the link for the Flu Vaccine Clinic schedule .
