At home Covid-19 test kits - On 12/13, Governor Baker announced plans to increase access to at-home Covid-19 test kits for residents across the Commonwealth.  Test kits were secured for towns with the highest percentages of families living below the federal poverty level.  The determination was made based on US Census Data.  The Town of Wayland does not have access to free test kits from this program.  The state will be working on a plan to allow towns and other public entities to directly purchase test kits from manufactureres at a fixed state negotiated price.  We don't expect this to be finalized until sometime in mid-January. If new information becomes available we will put out a press release.


Flu vaccination clinics have concluded for 2021, if you need a flu shot please call our office: 508-358-6805, press 2.
