Last week the Boston Red Sox returned to Fenway Park and BIDMC's own Ed Ullman, MD, was one of three chosen to throw a ceremonial first pitch before the Opening Day game! Dr. Ullman has overseen the first aid room at Fenway Park for 18 years, but he treated more than 1,000 COVID-19 patients as an attending physician in the BIDMC Emergency Department. He also oversaw the mass COVID-19 vaccination site at Fenway Park, which administered more than 56,000 doses of the vaccine. #FlashbackFriday ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Opening Day (take two)!

As we welcome our favorite team, the Boston Red Sox, back to the field, we must put the health and wellbeing of our communities first by continuing safety measures. This includes wearing a mask, watching your distance, washing your hands, and getting vaccinated when it’s your turn. Do it for the roar of the crowd in Fenway Park, the smell of hot dogs cooking on the grill, and the love of the game!

Some of our Red Sox favorites shared their reason for getting vaccinated once it's their turn. Get all your coronavirus news and information here: bit.ly/3ospzZI
