In December 2020, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH)announced the roll-out of Phase 1 of the COVID Vaccine Plan. Individuals eligible in Phase 1 of the plan included frontline healthcare workers. On December 22nd, the Holyoke Health Center received their first shipment of 400 Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines and in that same week, vaccine clinics for Holyoke Health Center staff members began. As of mid-January, approximately 300 Holyoke Health Center staff members have been vaccinated for COVID-19, over 80% of the entire organization.
