March 29, 2021
Board of Health Surpasses 5,000 Doses Administered
Wonderland Site Completes First Full Week of Operation
REVERE -- Today Mayor Brian Arrigo and the Revere Board of Health provided an update on COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the city. As of Thursday, March 25, 2021, more than 8,700 Revere residents had been fully vaccinated, and an additional 6,000+ had received the first of a two-dose vaccine. The City is averaging 20.9 new cases of COVID-19 per day and our positivity rate is 3.75%. Positive cases had continued to slowly decline over the course of the month of March, but have begun to rise over the past week.
To-date the Revere Board of Health has administered more than 5,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Revere residents and workers, including at more than two dozen clinics offered at Rumney Marsh Academy, on-site at senior housing facilities and house calls to homebound residents. The Revere Board of Health will continue to serve as a vaccination provider as supply allows, including at an upcoming mobile clinic for essential workers.
Vaccination options for Revere residents have been further bolstered with last week's opening of a vaccination site at the Oceanside/Wonderland Ballroom, in partnership with East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC). Vaccination at the site is by appointment only and available to eligible residents. EBNHC receives a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses each week. To request an appointment, residents should visit bit.ly/EBNHCvax or call 617-568-4870.
