Circuit City site to close next month
The Covid-19 vaccination site at the former Circuit City will close July 13, Gov. Charlie Baker’s administration has announced.
Rather than continue to host mass vaccination sites, the administration will instead focus on increasing targeted community-based vaccine efforts to reach remaining populations, the administration said in a June 3 press release.
Nearly 3.7 million residents have been fully vaccinated and over 4.3 million people have received at least a first dose, the administration said.
Circuit City will be the last of the mass vaccination sites to close. Gillette Stadium is scheduled to close June 14, the first of the major sites to shut down.
The Circuit City location continues to be available for vaccinations until its July closure. Walk-in appointments are available, but registration is still an option. For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit vaxfinder.mass.gov.
Those interested in getting vaccinated can also sign up for shots at the old VF Outlet through Southcoast Health as slots are available, either through their MyChart account or at www.southcoast.org/covid-19-vaccine-scheduling/, which does not require a MyChart account.
Southcoast is also offering walk-up vaccines at various locations.
The Covid-19 vaccine is free, and individuals do not need insurance or an ID to get the vaccine.
As of June 3, the state reports that 51% of Dartmouth residents have gotten at least a first dose of a vaccine.
