COVID-19 Vaccines and Testing at New Health Added Weekend Dates

On Saturday, January 8, NEW Health will offer a vaccine clinic at their Charlestown site for families to come at the same time to get their vaccines (1st, 2nd, or 3rd dose), boosters, and pediatric vaccines. The clinic is booked and no longer taking appointments, but media are welcome onsite day-of.

Due to high demand, NEW Health will also offer two additional COVID testing sessions on Saturday, January 8 and again on Saturday, January 15 at their North End site from 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. . Appointments need to be scheduled in advance by calling 617-643-8000.

Media are welcome at all sites for photos, b-roll and interviews with advance permission and coordination.

Vaccines, boosters and third dose vaccines can still be scheduled at regular Primary Care Physician appointments for existing NEW Health patients and at designated times for all Boston residents ages 12 years and older. Boosters are now available for anyone ages 16 and older. The ongoing appointment schedule is available here.
