Baker-Polito Administration Teams Up with Dunkin’ and Museum of Science with Initiatives to Vaccinate Massachusetts

Boston — The Baker-Polito Administration, in collaboration with the Museum of Science Boston and Dunkin’ today announced initiatives to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines in the Commonwealth. Massachusetts continues to be a national leader in vaccination rates with over 77% of adults having received at least one dose, and the Administration is supporting additional opportunities to drive vaccine uptake.

Museum of Science Vaccination Clinic

The Museum of Science Boston and CIC Health will host a vaccination clinic for all individuals 12 and older who live, work or study in Massachusetts on Friday, May 28, from 11AM– 6PM and Saturday, May 29, from 11AM – 4PM.

Visitors receiving a vaccine will be provided free parking and two free tickets to the museum, which can be used for a future date. Live demonstrations from Museum educators, raffles and other giveaways will be offered to those who come to receive their vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered at this clinic, and another clinic will be held on June 18 & 19 to facilitate second doses.

Vaccine administration will be held in the Atrium outside the Charles Hayden Planetarium and Mugar Omni Theater. Advanced registration for an appointment is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcomed. Visit https://www.cic-health.com/mos to book an appointment.
