Winter Storm Disrupts Massachusetts COVID-19 Rollout

February 1, 2021

BOSTON — The second phase of Massachusetts’ coronavirus vaccine rollout is being disrupted by a winter storm that’s causing schedule changes and at least one vaccination location shutdown.

The Reggie Lewis Center in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood, which was supposed to open Monday as a mass vaccination site for residents age 75 and over, will not open because of the storm.

Boston’s Public Health Commission tweeted that appointments that were scheduled for Monday will automatically be rescheduled for Feb. 8.

Mass vaccination sites at Gillette Stadium and Fenway Park are open, but with some changes.
