Students and staff at South Shore Educational Collaborative (SSEC) were vaccinated Monday with the help of South Shore Health’s Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) team.

SSEC provides specialized educational and residential programs and services for students and adults diagnosed with a wide range of intellectual, educational, emotional, social, physical and/or medical challenges. 

Forty-seven members of SSEC, including 34 adolescents and 13 adults, received a first dose vaccine at the SSEC clinic, one of several South Shore Health vaccination services announced this week.

Dr. Kimberly Dever, Vice President of Medical Affairs and Chair of OB/GYN, South Shore Health was on hand to support the school and her 20 year old son, who has been an SSEC student for 10 years.

“I’m thrilled to be here today to support Bobby and his school community, as well as our extraordinary MIH team,” Dr. Dever said.

Student Tyler Bopp and members of his family, Aiden Bopp, Lynne Tucker and Jeff Copeland, all of Pembroke, received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine together.

South Shore Health recently began offering vaccines to people ages 12 years and older at two of its Health Express urgent care centers in Kingston and Braintree. 

South Shore Medical Center in Norwell will hold a vaccination clinic on Thursday, May 27 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM for ages 12 years old and older. Future dates will be announced as supplies are made available.
