Dear members of the Tufts community,

I am writing to let you know about an exciting new vaccination partnership of which Tufts University is a part. The Metro North COVID-19 Vaccination Partnership is a consortium of nine local cities, Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), and Tufts University and was approved by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as a part of its statewide network of vaccination locations. The Partnership’s three joint vaccination sites will include the Gantcher Center on Tufts campus at 161 College Avenue in Medford.

As part of this consortium, the Gantcher Center will be a public vaccination site open for any Massachusetts resident who is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. We will be holding vaccination clinics at Gantcher on May 5, 6, 12, and 13, and invite you to schedule your appointment online now.

We will notify you when more vaccination dates are scheduled. For additional information on how to get your vaccine and related policies and requirements for the Tufts community, visit COVID-19 Vaccine Information.

The increasing COVID-19 vaccination coverage and access for our community gives me hope for a brighter future.

Sincerely yours,


Michael R. Jordan, M.D., M.P.H.
University Infection Control Health Director
