COVID-19 Vaccinations are Now Available at the Hynes

The COVID-19 pandemic may have changed how we use our venues over the past year, but what didn’t change was our commitment to customer excellence and service to the public.

During the darkest days of the pandemic we transformed New England’s biggest building, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, into a 1,000 Boston Hope Field Hospital to care for coronavirus patients. And now, the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center is welcoming thousands of people every day to be vaccinated as we make the transition from treating, to defeating, the coronavirus.

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (“MCCA”) and our friends and partners in the hospitality community have borne a unique burden during the pandemic as the things that people enjoy doing together – traveling for business and pleasure, attending events of all kinds, staying in hotels, eating out and exploring new places – were the first activities to be restricted and will be the last to return. But return they will.

And the MCCA will be ready to get back to doing what we do best – getting back to business as a key economic engine for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
