METHUEN, MASS. (WHDH) - Bay State U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Congresswoman Lori Trahan say vaccine centers should follow the lead of a health clinic in Methuen to make testing and vaccines more accessible.

The Methuen Family Health Center recently received an $8.5 million grant from the American Rescue Plan.

“They’re partnering with all their community partners, they’re also calling people up on the phone and making sure you are eligible for a vaccine,” Trahan said. “I think that those resources are what’s needed to ensure that we’re going to people where they are and this is a great example of a health center that’s doing that.”
