The COVID-19 vaccination site at Natick Mall will closed by the end of June as the state refocuses on delivering vaccines through more regional, targeted facilities.
The Natick Mall site opened in February, initially offering 500 doses per day, then ramping up to thousands per day. Vaccines have been administered by appointment only, and have become increasingly available. Walk-in vaccinations will soon be available as well.
The state will redeploy vaccines to regional sites, especially those serving communities where vaccination uptake has been low.
The mass vaccination sites at Gillette Stadium, Hynes Convention Center, and Double Tree in Danvers are also closing.
Nearly 40% of Natick’s population had been vaccinated as of last Thursday, when the state issued its weekly numbers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 3.9 million people in Massachusetts have been fully or partially vaccinated.
