There have been 13 new COVID-19 cases in Hingham since June 1 -- five last month, and eight this month, according to Asst. Town Administrator Michelle Monsegur. "There have been no Delta variant cases," she told the Select Board Tuesday night, noting that "68 percent of Hingham residents were fully vaccinated as of last week."
Seniors in need of transportation to get a vaccination are encouraged to call the Senior Center at (781) 741-1458.
Hingham Link volunteers, who are fully vaccinated, are available to drive town residents in need of transportation to vaccination appointments. The process is easiest when you sign up online at https://www.hinghamlink.com/needhelp -- or call (781) 908-0590.
Be sure to leave your name, phone number, street address, and other details. A few days' notice is helpful, as it is difficult for the Hingham Link group to arrange schedules for rides at the last minute.
Vaccinations are available nearby -- in Hingham, Norwell, Weymouth, and at other locations.
