To get vaccines to communities heavily impacted by COVID-19, the city of Worcester is vaccinating senior residents who are homebound or living in Worcester Housing Authority sites.
The city’s Health and Human Services Mobile Vaccination team visited the Elm Park Tower on Pleasant Street Monday.
They were expecting to vaccinate 126 residents.
Last week, they vaccinated hundreds of residents at the Webster Square East and West Towers.
The WHA said they're working to make the vaccination process as easy as possible for their residents.
"We've done extensive outreach to these residents. Phone calls, robocalls, pre-registrations, so really kind of making it an easy flow going to get right through the process. We've done videos with doctors and we had UMass students, medical doctors make phone calls to the residents to help ease their mind and talk about the importance of getting it,” said Don Prescott, Vice President of Training and Development for the Worcester Housing Authority.
On Wednesday, the vaccine team will be in Holden at Checkerberry Village before returning to sites in Worcester next week.
