The clinics will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all three locations, allowing people to get a free vaccine, while enjoying free food, music, and a gift.
Walk-ins are welcome at any of these mobile clinics. The clinics are free and open to all people 12 years or older, regardless of immigration status or health insurance. Identification is not required. If you prefer, you can pre-register at tinyurl.com/MobileVaxClinic. All minors must have parent or guardian permission, and anyone who is 12 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Permission forms are available here and will also be available on site.

Somerville Vaccine Day is a partnership between the City of Somerville, Cambridge Health Alliance, Tufts Health Plan, Holy Bible Baptist Church, St. Anthony’s Parish, the Brazilian Presbyterian Church of Boston, and the Everett Haitian Community Center.
Cambridge Health Alliance’s mobile vaccination program brings the COVID-19 vaccine to the community, offering pop-up clinics at churches, mosques, schools, housing developments and community centers. With the support of the Mass. Department of Public Health and the cities of Somerville, Everett, Malden and Revere, CHA has provided more than 1,500 vaccinations to community members during the pop-up clinics and encourages everyone to get vaccinated to help end the COVID-19 pandemic.
People who are not available on July 11 can also get a free vaccine any Monday through Friday at the CHA Vaccine Center, 176 Somerville Ave., Somerville. More information is available at challiance.org/vaccine.
