BOSTON (WWLP) – The Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care announced, a new “Mobile Vax” as an effort to reach and vaccinate more people against COVID-19.

The mobile vaccination clinics will administer approximately 500 vaccinations per day and will visit East Boston, Chelsea, Holyoke, and Chicopee over the next several weeks, the first stop will be East Boston on April 24. 

The mobile vaccination clinics require an appointment and no walk-ins will be accepted.
