CRUSH COVID WEBSITE

The Winchester Health Department has received limited allotments of vaccines that we have dedicated to the most vulnerable residents in Town, specifically homebound and our oldest residents as they are at highest risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. Kathy Whittaker, our Public Health Nurse has been making visits to homebound residents to administer vaccines.  The state provided Local Health Departments vaccines to administer to eligible housing authority residents and the Winchester Health Department held clinics at our 2 housing authority developments.  As supply allows, we will make vaccines available to eligible residents.  The Health Department is poised to vaccinate all school staff efficiently and conveniently at school buildings but unfortunately that is currently not an option.   When it is your turn, don't miss your shot to save lives.  And when you do, post a picture on social media and use the hashtag #winchestervaccinates.  Together we can make COVID history!
