 If you are eligible to receive the vaccine, please call us at 964-1251 or email us at to be put on the waitlist. We ask that you only call or email once, in order to avoid duplicate requests or more than one of our staff responding to your call or email.

We are planning to give 90 second doses and 300 first doses on Thursday, March 4. We are starting to fill the schedule from the waitlist, starting with people aged 65 and up, so remember to answer your phones in case it’s us, trying to schedule you for a vaccine. So far, MCC has given 2,996 vaccines! We are so glad to give a #shotofhope to our community!
