Pawtucket and Blackstone Valley Community Health Care Join Forces on Vaccinations

 

PAWTUCKET- The City of Pawtucket, Pawtucket School Department, and Blackstone Valley Community Health Care are partnering to provide COVID-19 vaccination opportunities at local schools.

 

The goal of the partnership is to continue to provide vaccination opportunities for the school-age population in Pawtucket, however, the clinic will be open to anyone who is eligible for a vaccine.

 

“We know that continuing vaccination efforts is important to keeping our community safe against COVID-19,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “We appreciate the partnership to provide these opportunities for our students and families.”

 

“The COVID 19 vaccines are the most closely studied in medicine, and we Primary Care Providers at BVCHC highly recommend them to protect children against COVID19,” Dr. Cristina Pacheco, MD. “I vaccinated my children - and I recommend you do too!”

 

“The health and well-being of our students is our number one priority,” said Pawtucket Superintendent of Schools Dr. Cheryl McWilliams. “We all need to do our part to make sure our schools are safe. Access to vaccination clinics is a critical step to make sure everyone has the opportunity to be vaccinated.”

 

Vaccination stations will be located at Cunningham Elementary located at 40 Baldwin Street and Slater Middle School located at 281 Mineral Spring Avenue. First dose clinics are set for Tuesday, May 17th and Thursday, May 19th from 3pm to 5pm with second dose clinics set for Tuesday, June 7th and Thursday, June 9th from 3pm to 5m. A parent or guardian is required for vaccination of school-age individuals.
