COVID-19 Data

  • According to public health data from the MA Department of Public Health (DPH) released last week, the Town’s designation remains “yellow,” indicating a “medium risk” of spread in the community. 
  • The average daily incidence rate for the Town of Hingham is 54.8 per 100,000 residents, slightly down from the prior week. 
  • According to DPH, there have been 184 new cases of COVID-19 in the community over the past 14 days. There have been a total of 1,419 cases in Hingham since the start of the pandemic.
  • As of today, confirmed COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts have risen to 517,806.
  • Please continue to avoid high risk activities, especially indoor social gatherings.  In addition, all Massachusetts residents remain under orders from the Governor to wear masks at all times while in public. 

Vaccine Rollout

  • I wanted to share with you the latest news regarding COVID-19 vaccine distribution in the Town of Hingham.
  • At this time, all Phase 1 priority groups as well as individuals age 75 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine in Massachusetts. 
  • The Town has taken several steps in recent weeks to prepare for vaccination clinics for residents as part of Phase 2 of the state’s distribution plan.  
  • Last Thursday, Feb. 4th, the Town vaccinated 160 people during a clinic held at the South Shore Baptist Church for residents 75 years old and older and eligible Phase 1 individuals.  Members of the Hingham Fire Department administered the vaccine doses
  • We have been preparing for additional clinics for this portion of the population.  However, local vaccine distribution is dependent on receiving doses from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. 
  • Unfortunately, our most recent request for vaccine doses was not fulfilled, and we will need to wait until we are provided with more doses before we can schedule additional clinics in Hingham. 
  • We are doing everything in our power to acquire additional doses, and will continue to request the vaccine so we can resume our vaccination clinics for all eligible residents.  
  • We will release details on future vaccination clinics as additional doses are received. 
  • In the meantime, if you can access a COVID-19 vaccine through other means, you should do so.  We encourage eligible residents to make an appointment at one of the vaccination sites around the region. Information on available clinics and eligibility requirements can be found at mass.gov by clicking the COVID link.
  • If you end up receiving the vaccine through another organization and no longer need to be on the Town of Hingham list, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing CovidQuestions@hingham-ma.gov.
