Easthampton COVID-19 vaccine clinics held Monday

Coronavirus Local Impact

EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Some Easthampton residents turned out by the dozens for Monday’s Walk-up COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at the town’s community center.

Easthampton Health Director Bri Eichstaedt told 22News, she’s proud of her department for reaching out to those who had shown some hesitancy about the vaccine, but now supported the vaccination program.

“We advertised a lot, we distributed over five hundred flyers, we had a COVID call on our Facebook page, we had a line this morning,” she said.

Easthampton’s health director feels it was necessary to put in the extra effort to convince people who had been hesitated to join those who were unconcerned about the possibility of ill effects from the vaccine. Anyone with questions about the clinics can text a nurse from the Northampton Health Department at (413) 341-4611 or call (413) 587-1216 for more information.
