Brookline Spa To Serve As COVID-19 Vaccination Site

January 21, 2021

A Brookline spa is preparing to deliver coronavirus vaccines as Massachusetts looks to increase its vaccine rollout. Diana Brouillard, the owner of Dream Spa Medical, said the site has been approved and is waiting for its doses…

Newscaster 1: Local spa during the fight against COVID-19, it’s getting clearance from the state to be a vaccination site. Officials said the business has the infrastructure needed to safely store and administer those shots.

Newscaster 2: And so now that owner is ready to give out doses, S7’s Michael Yoshida has the story.

Report: “So this is the refrigeration that we have upstairs.”

Inside Dream Medical Spa, the fridges and staff are prepped and waiting for COVID-19 vaccines.

“We’re approved to be a vaccine site, and we’re just now corresponding with the Mass. DPH to find out exactly when we can expect our doses.”

Diana Brouillard owns the Brookline Medical Spa.

“We’re already a licensed healthcare clinic, why not utilize that platform to service the community and help stop the spread.”

Mass vaccination sites including the Gillette Stadium are being set up across the state to help stop the spread. And while this medical spa may not be what comes to mind when you think of getting your COVID shot, Brouillard says they’re ready.

“You wouldn’t think that we would be doing the vaccine, but we do botox injections all day everyday, right? And we do filler injections, all sorts of injections into the face, which are very precise injections. So we’re definitely trained and adequate in performing the vaccination injections.”

So Brouillard signed up to be part of the Massachusetts’ COVID-19 vaccine program, which allows healthcare providers and organizations in the state the ability to administer the vaccine. It requires providing information to the state, including signing an agreement form, as well as registering with the Massachusetts Immunization System to make sure all vaccination data can be reported. Once approved, employees are trained how to receive, store and give the vaccine. As of now, Brouillard says she’s still waiting to find out when the vaccine will be delivered to them. When the time does come, she says the plan is set to get the doses out.

“We’ll have set COVID vaccine clinic hours. Once we get going we’ll be able to vaccinate anywhere from 50-75 people during those hours.”
