By now it's a difficult task not to get vaccinated against COVID-19. You really have to go out of your way to dodge a vaccination but some folks in Berkshire County have yet to be vaccinated.
The staff at Community Health Programs (CHP), is putting in their best effort to get as many Berkshire County residents vaccinated as possible, as not only are they making it convenient but they are offering some hefty incentives for you to pull up your sleeve and get the shot.
Coming up this evening at Sounds of Summer at the Great Barrington VFW from 6-8pm, CHP's mobile health unit will be present and the staff will be administrating COVID-19 vaccinations to anyone who hasn't had one. Other than remaining healthy and preventing COVID-19 from entering your body, tonight's incentive for receiving the vaccine includes CHP giving out Big Y gift cards, as well as entering people to win Six Flags passes. You will be entered/receive the gift card when you get vaccinated tonight.
Again, this is all part of getting as many Berkshire County residents vaccinated as possible. Even though many residents throughout the Berkshires have been fully vaccinated, we still have some work to do as the following Berkshire County towns have some of the lowest vaccine rates in the entire state of Massachusetts:
- New Marlborough
So, while you're at Sounds of Summer this evening, feel free to roll up your sleeve, receive a Big Y gift card and get in the running to to win Six Flags passes. Stay healthy and we'll see you this evening at Sounds of Summer.
