State Launches COVID-19 Mass-vaccination Site at Gillette Stadium

BOSTON — The Baker-Polito administration announced the first location for a COVID-19 mass-vaccination site in the Commonwealth, located at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

These sites will initially be available to first responders and later other eligible individuals as the Command Center works through the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 vaccine-distribution plan.

This site will open with the capacity to administer 300 vaccines per day, with the potential to ramp up to 5,000 vaccines per day over time.

CIC Health will operate the site, with Brigham & Women’s Hospital as the medical director and Fallon Ambulance supporting the clinical staffing.

Eligible vaccine recipients will be able to schedule appointments on the state’s COVID vaccine website at mass.gov/covidvaccine and CIC Health’s website at cichealth.com/vaccines.

The COVID-19 Command Center is working to set up additional mass-vaccination sites throughout the Commonwealth, and more details will be available soon.
