Holyoke – Behavioral Health Network, Inc.

The clinic is being held to take advantage of a busy shopping weekend at Holyoke Mall with shoppers taking advantage of the 6.25% sales tax savings.
Behavioral Health Network has partnered with Holyoke’s Board of Health and the Holyoke Mall to host the free pop-up Pfizer clinic. The clinic does not require an appointment and no insurance is required to get the vaccine. Another clinic will be held on September 5.
According to BHN’s Kristy Santos, “Vaccine Equity is crucial for saving lives. We want to do our part to make vaccine access available to everyone in Western Massachusetts.”
“We are proud to partner with these organizations to provide even more access to the vaccine in the fight against COVID-19,” said Lynn Gray, Holyoke Mall’s General Manager. “Guests that are coming out to take advantage of the sales tax holiday this weekend can also have family members over the age of 12 vaccinated just in time to go back to school.”
