Cambridge-based CIC Health, the entity operating the stadium’s vaccination site, said it’s still moving forward as normal for early next week but will make changes if necessary.
“CIC Health is planning to keep operations going,” a CIC Health representative told WBZ-TV on Friday.
In the case that CIC Health needs to close the site due to weather, they will contact those expected to get a shot by email and “make sure that they have a rescheduled appointment.”READ MORE: Watch Live @ 9 AM: Baker Announcement On COVID Vaccinations In Massachusetts
According to WBZ-TV’s Executive Weather Producer Terry Eliasen, the storm timeline “appears to be late Monday afternoon and evening through Tuesday. There is potential for a significant amount of snow with this system, track dependent as always.”
On Wednesday, Massachusetts residents age 75 and older were able to begin registering for a coronavirus vaccine appointment. Shots are scheduled to begin being administered starting Monday as part of Phase 2 of the state’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.
