PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Health Systems has announced it will provide COVID-19 vaccine clinics in its Medical Arts Complex, located adjacent to Berkshire Medical Center, in the coming weeks, as efforts continue to achieve a higher percentage of vaccinations in the community. 
 
The COVID-19 vaccine is free and is available to anyone ages 12 and older.
 
Vaccine clinics will be held on the second floor of the Medical Arts Complex, which faces the parking lot for the facility, on Tuesdays, June 15 and 22, and Thursdays, June 17 and 24, from 11 am to 2 pm. The Pfizer vaccine will be provided at all of these clinics, requiring two doses.
