Local Vaccination Clinic - May 4, 2021 - Gorges Road Fire Station

The Kittery Fire Department is hosting a local vaccination clinic on May 4 at the Gorges Road Fire Station.  Any eligible resident of Maine may sign-up for the vaccination by clicking here.

The Fire Department is pleased to be able to offer this vaccination clinic in our area.  Chief David O’Brien is coordinating the vaccination clinic through the Incident Management Team of the York County EMA.  He is working with our team of Firefighters, and Stewards Ambulance Service to ensure a safe and efficient process for administering shots in one day.   This is not a drive-through clinic. 

We are encouraging residents in the Kittery/Eliot area to sign up.  We understand traveling to a supercenter or York may be a challenge for some of our residents. This clinic offers a closer option to get vaccinated.

The Fire Department is hoping to host additional clinics in the coming months, as the State of Maine continues to accelerate access to vaccine throughout the state.
