GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – City officials in Greenfield provided an update on the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic Friday morning.
Mayor Roxann Wedegartner held a news conference at 10:00 am outside the John Zon Community Center on 35 Pleasant Street. She said the city is closing its Jon Zon Senior Center vaccine clinic, after administering more than 17,000 vaccinations.
“We have fulfilled our promise to the community to help the most essential and most vulnerable. We’ve vaccinated first responders, medical personnel, seniors, and teachers, to get the schools open. Since then, the supply elsewhere has met the demand for the vaccines and there are now various venues, our pharmacies, our doctors offices, that can carry forward,” said Wedegartner.
