CAPE ANN — The Greater Cape Ann Community Collaborative (GCACC) wishes remind the community of COVID-19 vaccination clinics scheduled to be held in Ipswich.
Monday, June 21, and Monday, June 28, both from 1-4 p.m.
Our Lady of Hope Parish at 1 Pineswamp Road, Ipswich
The GCACC invites anyone in need of a vaccine who lives, works or studies in Massachusetts to attend one of the scheduled clinics in Ipswich. The vaccine is free, and no identification or health insurance is needed to receive a vaccination.
Walk-ins are welcome; however, appointments are encouraged and can be made by clicking here. The clinic is open to all age 12 and older, whether people need a first or a second dose of the vaccine.
At this time, the Ipswich clinics will offer doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine only.
Clinics are also being held weekly at the GCACC Coolidge Hall in Topsfield on Thursdays from 2-3:30 p.m., and at the Community House in Rockport on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Both the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be readily available at the Topsfield and Rockport clinics.
Those ages 12 to 17 need to bring a consent form filled out by a parent or guardian to the clinic, if they are not being accompanied by a parent or guardian. However, the GCACC encourages parents and guardians to come with anyone under the age of 18 receiving a vaccine as children and teens may feel anxious.
The GCACC is also authorized by the MDPH to administer vaccines in other public spaces, and in targeted spaces such as businesses, schools, and houses of worship. Local organizations looking to partner with the GCACC can contact Hamilton Public Health Nurse Rachel Lee at 978-290-9618. The GCACC will publicize dates and times of open clinics when they are finalized.
