Boston Medical Center yesterday announced it's opening clinics in several Boston neighborhoods to provide Covid-19 shots to eligible residents - those on the state's Phase 1 list and people 75 or older.
The new sites are in Hyde Park, Roslindale, Mattapan and Dorchester, as well as at the medical center itself. Mattapan's first appointments are on Feb. 16, Dorchester's on Feb. 19, while the others are already open for shots.
Eligible residents can get more details and schedule an appointment at BMC's Covid-19 Web site.
The state announced this week it was halting vaccine shipments for two week to hospitals in an effort to get more vaccine to sites that might be able to vaccinate more people closer to where they live, such as community health centers.
