Barnstable County No Longer Holding COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics at Cape Cod Community College
Future Vaccine Clinics to be held at County Complex
June 24, 2021 – Barnstable, MA | The Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment announced today that it will no longer conduct COVID-19 clinics at the Cape Cod Community College gymnasium. Instead, beginning July 1, Barnstable County will be holding weekly COVID-19 vaccine clinics in the Harborview Conference Room located at the top of the hill within the Barnstable County Complex at 3195 Main Street in Barnstable Village. Clinics will take place at this location every Thursday from 10am to 2pm. Pfizer vaccine will be offered to anyone age 12+, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be offered to anyone age 18+.
Barnstable County would like to acknowledge the invaluable service Cape Cod Community College, via the support and cooperation of College President John Cox, Vice President of Finance and Operations Chris Clarke, Chief of College Police Maria Padilla and Director of Facilities and Sustainability Joe MacKinnon provided to our region during the COVID-19 pandemic. The College has hosted 48 vaccine clinics and provided an accessible location for the administration of over 22,000 injections through Barnstable County clinics alone; these figures do not include several additional clinics that were operated by Cape Cod Healthcare at the site as well. Cape Cod Community College also served as a drive-through COVID-19 testing site in the early stages of the pandemic and was praised by Governor Charlie Baker for excellent layout and throughput.
According to Sean O’Brien, Director of Barnstable County’s Department of Health and Environment, the partnership with 4Cs was an integral part of the County’s vaccine distribution plan. “We could not have provided such outstanding service to this community without use of their facilities. The traffic flow, parking and availability of a large indoor space were precisely what we needed to pull off such a successful vaccination effort and we are extremely grateful for their contribution”.
