Brockton Vaccination Overview

From the moment the first supply of COVID-19 vaccines were delivered to Brockton, Mayor Robert F. Sullivan has been working closely with the Board of Health, Brockton Neighborhood Health Center, Brockton Emergency Management Agency, and other community partners to provide opportunities for all residents to receive the vaccine. The City currently receives 600 weekly vaccines from the Commonwealth. These weekly allotments have been distributed everywhere from weekly BHNC clinics at the Shaw’s center to scheduled Board of Health clinics in different venues across the City.

Brockton COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Initiative

As a majority-minority community the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the City of Brockton hard. It has disproportionately affected communities of color in the City. Therefore, under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ “COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Initiative,” a new initiative has been created to ensure that every race has access to and is sufficiently informed about the COVID-19 vaccine. This initiative is called the “Brockton COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Initiative.” This initiative will allow for the City to received additional COVID-19 vaccines, apart from the weekly allocations from the state and federal government. As of April 16th, the City has been allotted 6,210 additional equity vaccine doses. For more information on the Brockton COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Initiative click (here).
