The Town’s COVID-19 team has a vaccine plan in place and we are awaiting more information from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to finalize the plan and be ready for municipal vaccination clinics for Phase Two and Three.
Currently, we are in Phase One of the State's Vaccine timeline. The Town is not running municipal vaccination clinics in Phase One. Longmeadow Police and Fire Department personnel are receiving the vaccine in Phase One through a regional vaccination effort with other area public safety departments, those vaccinations began this week.
Phase Two and Three of the vaccination schedule will provide the COVID-19 vaccine to the majority of Longmeadow residents. The Town's COVID-19 team is planning and preparing for municipal vaccination clinics set up similar to what was done for flu immunization clinics in the fall of 2020. The State is also planning for regional vaccination sites.
As more information is released from the State and Longmeadow's plans are finalized, information will be shared with residents. The Town will communicate with residents via CodeRED, Facebook, Twitter, the Town website and local news media. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for the CodeRED emergency notification system.
The Town does not have a supply of vaccine yet and there is no signup list for residents. Once the State releases information on when Phase Two will begin the Town will release information on when clinics will be held, how residents will make an appointment and other general information.
