Vaccinations at public housing to begin Thursday after state stumbles; some will get shots at home (Cambridge Housing Authority)

From Cambridge Day:

A campaign to bring Covid-19 vaccine to tenants in public housing developments for the elderly and disabled has begun to show results. On Thursday the Cambridge Public Health Department will vaccinate residents of Manning Apartments in their 205-unit building in Central Square. On Friday, tenants at the 297-unit Miller’s River Apartments in East Cambridge will get the vaccine onsite.

The two developments are among the city’s largest public housing developments for seniors and the disabled. Chief public health officer Claude Jacob announced the news to city councillors Wednesday, at a meeting delayed from Monday by snow. He didn’t say how the public health department came up with enough vaccine for the two buildings after previously saying a state decision to cut vaccine allocations to local health departments prevented onsite vaccinations in public and private affordable senior housing.
