BOSTON (WHDH) – Residents of Roxbury now have two ways of getting vaccinated if they are eligible for the coronavirus vaccine.
In addition to the Reggie Lewis Center, eligible residents can now utilize the mobile vaccination center run by Whittier Street Health Center staff.
The health center has partnered with Peabody Properties to bring the vaccine to the Roxse Homes Apartment Complex. Approximately 150 seniors received their shots from the health center.
“Being here is critical. If we are going to increase the vaccination rates in the minority communities, there has to be a different strategy. And this is one of the strategies that we believe will be effective,” Whittier Street Health Center President and CEO Frederica Williams said.
