Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree Announces Partnership with Regional COVID Vaccination Clinic
Saugus Residents May Book Vaccine Appointments Beginning in May
(Saugus, MA) April 29, 2021 – Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree is pleased to announce that the Town of Saugus has partnered with the Cities of Salem, Beverly, Lynn, and Peabody and the Towns of Danvers, Marblehead, Nahant, and Swampscott to establish a regional COVID-19 vaccination clinic that is accessible and convenient for all Saugus residents over the age of 16.
The clinic, which will be held at Salem State University O’Keefe Center, 225 Canal Street, Salem, will open in May. Specific dates and times will be announced and posted at www.salem.com/vaccine.
The State approved the regional application to establish the North Shore Regional COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic earlier this week following Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll forming a North Shore city and town collaboration. Mayor Driscoll submitted an application to establish the site several months ago. The Town of Saugus jumped at the opportunity to participate in the collaborative as part of a continued effort to prioritize the health and safety of Saugus residents, and to help residents more easily find and book vaccine appointments at a nearby location.
“Access to COVID-19 vaccinations continues to be a priority of the Saugus Board of Selectmen and this administration,” stated Town Manager Crabtree.
“I want to thank the Town Manager and everyone involved for making this happen. Saugus residents will greatly benefit from having a regional vaccination site in our road back to normalcy,” said Saugus Selectman Chairman Anthony Cogliano.
“We are thrilled to partner with our North Shore cities and towns to offer a regional clinic for our residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccines,” said Town Manager Crabtree. “Saugus is grateful to the Baker-Polito administration, Salem State University, and Mayor Driscoll for spearheading this regional collaboration. Saugus will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents and look for ways to expand access to the vaccinations.”
Saugus residents are encouraged to book an appointment by visiting www.salem.com/vaccine and clicking the “North Shore Regional Vaccination Clinic” link once it is listed on that page. Appointments will be subject to the availability of vaccine doses, which are provided by the State.
“We hope Saugus residents and their families will take advantage of this additional opportunity to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations in a convenient and easy-to-access manner. The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, and we are proud to help provide protection to our community through this important initiative,” concluded Town Manager Crabtree.
