COVID-19 VACCINATION INFORMATION FOR PHASE TWO: The Town of Shrewsbury would like to acknowledge all of the anxiety, stress, and fear that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused for all of our residents and business owners. We realize how difficult this has been and continues to be for you. Please be assured that the Town of Shrewsbury has been and will continue to push out information as soon it becomes available. At the end of this communication, please see the various methods in which the Town disseminates information.

The Town of Shrewsbury is working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) on the COVID-19 vaccine roll out process. MDPH is the state agency that determines when vaccines will become available to different segments of the public and how it will be made available to these groups. This plan, with timelines for arrival of the vaccine can be found on the MDPH website at: https://www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine-in-massachusetts. Please note that this website is updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week.

The Town does not have the ability to purchase additional vaccines or expedite the process. The phased approach, which is being followed across the State, has been developed by medical and health professionals at the MPDH to best deliver the vaccine in a coordinated effort across the Commonwealth.

Please be sure to wear a mask whenever outside of your home, wash your hands frequently, avoid gatherings, and continue to take precautions as we continue to battle the COVID-19 virus.
