Mayor Sarno and Police Commissioner Clapprood Send SPD Units to Curative Vaccination Site at Eastfield Mall – Orders Management to Get Senior Citizens Inside –

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood have sent Springfield Police Department (SPD) units to the Eastfield Mall to order Curative site operations management to immediately get our seniors and those who are waiting in line inside the mall and out of the cold weather. In addition, those individuals with a schedule appointment who cannot wait inside will be told to wait in their vehicles and that Curative must establish a communications method of notifying those waiting in their vehicles when they can get in line inside for their scheduled appointment.

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “It is time to take the bull by the horns.  Although I am very thankful to Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito for their partnership and commitment to Springfield and Western Massachusetts by placing this mass vaccination site in our city – the operational logistics by Curative must improve.  Commissioner Clapprood and I have directed our dedicated SPD units to the Eastfield Mall to tell Curative to get our seniors and those individuals waiting in line for their vaccination to go inside and out of the cold.  SPD will work with the National Guard, who the Governor and Lt. Governor have recently dispatched to provide assistance, to assure that our beloved seniors are taken care of and are not waiting outside in the cold weather and that they are reassured that they will not lose their place in line.”
