Municipal Webinar: Vaccine Distribution in Senior Subsidized Housing @ Zoom Conference
Feb 9 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Commonwealth recently announced that residents and staff of public and subsidized senior housing are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations as part of the first tier of Phase II of the vaccine rollout. This step is anticipated to begin later this month.

With this opportunity comes the need to quickly arrange vaccination opportunities for some of state’s most vulnerable residents. This requires coordination among three groups: municipal officials and staff, including local boards of health; owners and managers of public and subsidized senior housing, including local housing authorities; and medical providers who can staff clinics and vaccinate residents.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 9 to learn how cities and towns can support vaccination in senior housing facilities.

Webinar speakers will include:
Robin Lipson, Deputy Secretary, Executive Office of Elder Affairs
Emily Cooper, Chief Housing Officer, Executive Office of Elder Affairs

There will be an opportunity to ask questions!

More information from the Commonwealth on COVID-19 vaccinations for senior housing setting is available here.

Join us on Wednesday March 3 at 7:30PM, for the premiere of the stories shared by a Salon owner, a Lion dance instructor, and the CEO of a travel agency in Quincy’s vibrant Asian American business community.
Following the premiere, there will be a live Q&A with the artist, Daphne Xu to talk about her practice and dive deeper into the role of socially-engaged art in planning.
