  • Since Wednesday, 51 residents have tested positive, 27 more have recovered, and the City learns of two new fatalities associated with COVID-19: The number of people in the City who have tested positive for COVID-19 is 6,647. With 5,210 recovered and 221 fatalities, Framingham currently has 1,216 active cases. The Framingham Health Department contacts the people who were potentially exposed and the owners of the businesses or places of employment where the potential exposures occurred to inform and counsel them on next steps (contact tracing). In addition to the active cases, the Health Department is following 490 residents in quarantine. 

 

  • Recipients of COVID-19 dose one vaccine at the February 6 Framingham Public Health Department clinic at Keefe Tech to be invited to make an appointment for Dose 2: Beginning Monday, February 22, those individuals who received dose one of the COVID-19 Moderna vaccine on February 6 will be invited to make an appointment for a private dose two clinic tentatively planned for Saturday, March 6, at Keefe Tech. Individuals will be emailed through the PrepMod system with a link to make an appointment. The system will use the same email address individuals entered to make their dose one appointment. People who filled out paper registration forms will be called to obtain their email address so that they can make their appointment through the PrepMod system. Because receipt of the vaccine is fluid, the second dose clinic's date is tentative and subject to change. The exact dosing date of the second vaccine is not critical as long as a minimum of 28 days has passed since dose one of the Moderna vaccine. If the date of the private, second dose clinic changes, those who have appointments will be informed.

Spicer is inviting you to join her to discuss some of the critical challenges in our community. Attendees will be able to pose questions during the hour via Zoom's Chat function.
