UPDATED: Are you still seeking to obtain a Covid-19 booster or flu shot? It's not too late.

The Arlington Public Health Department is scheduled to run a pop-up clinic Thursday, March 16, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., according to town Public Health Director Natasha Waden.

She told YourArlington that it would be at the Arlington Community Center, 27 Maple St., in the Health and Human Services Conference Room on the 2nd floor of the building. 

Vaccines will be administered by members of the town's Public Health Department nursing team at no charge, Waden said.

The following vaccines will be available:

  • Flu vaccine (both the standard dose for those 6 months and up and the higher dose recommended for age 65 and older)
  • COVID Moderna bivalent vaccine

In case of questions, the best number to call is the main line of the health department 781-316-3170. 
"We can accommodate walk-ins but encourage pre-registration to expedite the process," Waden said.

The town's last such clinic was in late August 2022.

In the past three years since the pandemic began, more than 100 Arlingtonians have succumbed to Covid-19, most of them before vaccines became available, according to YourArlington's files.

Word about the March 16 local clinic came at around the same time as Gov. Maura Healey announced that the state’s Covid-19 public-health emergency will end May 11 and that the vaccination mandate for executive branch employees will be lifted.

This news announcement was published Wednesday. March 15, 2023, based on information from the Town of Arlington, and updated that evening with quotes, details and context from health officials and YourArlington's files.
