On Tuesday, 227 people got COVID-19 vaccines at the Milford High School, and on Wednesday, 430 people got COVID-19 vaccines at Stacy Middle School. The clinic at Stacy Middle School included students during the school day and then accommodated people with walk-in appointments after the school day.
The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people ages 12 and older on May 10.
The Milford Board of Health planned these clinics with the Southern Worcester County COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Collaborative, Milford Public Schools, Milford Fire Department, and the Salmon Visiting Nurse Association. Pinz in Milford also donated $10 gift cards to every person who got a vaccine. All these team players are critical to making these clinics run successfully.
On May 5, 308 students at Milford High School were vaccinated, and on April 7, 425 people were vaccinated at a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Milford Senior Center.
Through pop-up clinics, the Milford Board of Health has helped 1,390 people get vaccinated to date, and more through booking hundreds of appointments at various vaccination clinics.
Next week, there will be a clinic providing second dose appointments at Milford High School on May 26 during the school day. Pinz will also be hosting a clinic on May 26 from 4-8pm.
