Greenfield Provides Update on COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts with Upcoming Phase 2 Vaccine Clinic

GREENFIELD – Mayor Roxann D. Wedegartner, Greenfield Fire Chief/Emergency Management Director Robert Strahan, and Greenfield Health Director Jennifer Hoffman announce an update on the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the City of Greenfield and the opening of a Phase 2 vaccination clinic for residents of Franklin County at the John Zon Community Center (35 Pleasant Street, Greenfield). These efforts would not have been possible without the close, consistent collaboration between the City of Greenfield, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and our outstanding regional partner the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG).

Beginning next week, the city will continue with the second dose of the Phase 1 COVID-19 vaccine for First Responders in Franklin County – this completion of the Phase 1 clinic will run on the following days:

  • Wednesday, February 10, 2021
  • Friday, February 12, 2021
  • Saturday, February 13, 2021
  • Wednesday, February 17, 2021
  • Thursday, February 18, 2021
  • Friday, February 19, 2021

During these dates, the City will also be working to complete vaccination efforts of local Home Health Care workers, and to begin vaccination of residents over the age of 75. The Greenfield Health Department is reaching out directly to area Councils on Aging and Home Health Providers to assist in these efforts. Initially, there will not be a public registration process but additional details will be provided as soon they become available.

On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, the city will be launching a Phase 2 COVID-19 vaccination clinic for all eligible parties in Franklin County. This vaccination clinic will be open on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays with the hours of operation to be determined. The Greenfield Health Department will be opening registration for all eligible residents of Franklin County – with both online and phone registration options available.

According to Greenfield Health Director Jennifer Hoffman, “This has been a long, tough road but we are glad to be making this announcement and offering this additional service in Greenfield. This would not have happened without the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, our city staff, and our incredible agency and municipal partners in the region. Thank you!”

Mayor Roxann Wedegartner stated, “We’ve learned this year all about the complexity of public health and the cooperation needed to give people access to necessary services. As a city, we are proud to be able to offer this assistance at this time. I thank everyone who was involved in making this happen and for the efforts of our Health Department and Emergency Command personnel.”

This municipal clinic follows existing public-private partnership COVID-19 vaccine clinics that are currently open at:
