Thank You for Your Support

Your Support of MCHC Helps Us Help Others

Providing Exceptional Health Care for More than 40 Years!

For almost 50 years, the Mattapan Community Health Center has been providing high quality, affordable, culturally appropriate, health care to the residents of Mattapan and Hyde Park. We are the only primary care provider in the Mattapan and Hyde Park community and all who come to our doors seeking care are welcome regardless of their ability to pay. Whether you're employed or unemployed, new to the area or a lifelong resident, insured or uninsured, all who are in need of healthcare are welcome here.

When you make a gift to Mattapan Community Health Center, you help us to help those who can't help themselves by bridging the gap between the actual cost of providing care, and the income we receive from participating insurers.

Your contribution helps us honor our commitment to the people of this neighborhood, which we serve, by helping us provide the highest quality of care to our patients and thereby ensuring care for those most in need.

MCHC is a private, 501C-3 nonprofit corporation governed by a community-based board of directors. Contributions to MCHC are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. While there are many flu viruses, the flu vaccine protects against those that research suggests will be most common.

Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as this season's vaccines are available. Vaccination of high-risk persons is especially important to decrease their risk of severe flu illness. People at high risk of serious flu complications include young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older. Vaccination also is important for healthcare workers, and other people who live with or care for high-risk people to keep from spreading flu to high-risk people. Children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness but are too young to be vaccinated. People who care for them should be vaccinated instead.
