The vaccination site at the Reggie Lewis Center, along with Fenway Park, is one of two vaccination sites that opened this week in the City of Boston. The City of Boston continues to support the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ vaccination rollout and is working to expand the number and types of vaccination sites to make it more equitable across neighborhoods.
