The South Shore COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic has paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine until further review. Anyone with a scheduled appointment for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be substituted with either a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Please continue to watch for available vaccine appointments or walk-in clinic availability. The best way to do this is by signing up for email alerts, and you can do so here, where you can also sign up for vaccine appointments.
It’s important to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible, and we are doing our part as a city. Please do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by getting the shot.

New cases and hospitalizations are up in Wisconsin, and there are concerns a spike in cases is coming, given what we’re seeing in Michigan. Give the line chart in this post a good look — it’s deeply concerning.
Protect yourself and those around you by getting a vaccine and practicing safety measures like wearing a mask and social distancing.
