    Last week, clinics were held at the Greater Framingham Community Church and Framingham Public Health Nursing Office at 113 Concord Street. Since Wednesday, March 24, 5,674 (4,676 Moderna, 110 Pfizer, and 888 Johnson and Johnson) vaccinations have been administered under the Equity Initiative. Those who have received dose one of Moderna and Pfizer have been invited to return for a second dose at the same community site to become fully vaccinated. The COVID Vaccine Team will continue to offer several clinics each week for the equity initiative at various locations.

    To request a home visit, please call the City's Public Health Nursing Office at 508-532-5667. Leave your name, phone number, and address, and someone will return your call within 36 hours.
