Persons Seeking Vaccination Encouraged to Sign Up for Mobile Vaccine Clinic Alerts
The City of Somerville Health and Human Services Department has announced plans to jointly hold mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics with the Cambridge Health Alliance throughout the city.
Mobile vaccination clinic dates will be released as sites are confirmed. Dates and locations will be listed on somervillema.gov/vaccine and will be announced via City vaccine alerts (by text, phone, and e-mail). Community members are encouraged to sign up for City vaccine alerts to receive notification when mobile vaccination sites are announced. To sign-up, complete the form in your language below, or call 311 (617-666-3311).

Mobile clinics will be free, and open to all people 12 years or older, regardless of immigration status or health insurance. Identification will not be required. Mobile clinics will be walk-in, however pre-registration is encouraged to help ensure quick processing.
The City will prioritize clinic locations based on proximity to disproportionately affected community members and those facing the greatest barriers to vaccine access. Specific sites will include places of worship, neighborhood schools, housing complexes, and grocery stores convenient to residents. Clinics will be held during days and hours that accommodate a range of schedules to maximize access, including evenings and weekends.
In addition to the mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics, vaccine is available locally on a walk-in basis at the MetroNorth Vaccination PartnershipVaccination Center at 176 Somerville Avenue (next to Target) administered by Cambridge Health Alliance. Days and hours are available at challiance.org/covidvaccine. Individuals may also pre-register at home.color.com/vaccine/register/metronorth.

Anyone needing assistance accessing the COVID-19 vaccine, including finding a walk-in or mobile clinic, transportation, or language assistance, may call 311 (617-666-3311).
