The city of Revere yesterday began distributing stickers to small businesses whose employees are fully vaccinated. The stickers are part of a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of vaccination across the city.

Small businesses can join the program by applying through the city’s Inspectional Services Department, which then sends a COVID inspector to the small business for an attestation and designates it as a Fully Vaccinated Business. The city lists Fully Vaccinated Businesses on its website.

“This program helps provide our residents with another level of comfort to safely patronize our businesses and encourages them to shop and dine locally,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “Our small businesses are the backbone of our city, and once again they are showing their commitment to a safe full reopening.”

Revere businesses that were approved for stickers on the first day include Cafeteria Las Delicias Colombianas, Exito Multiservice, Circle Auto Gallery, the American Legion, Moccia Insurance, Peter Woo’s, Pine River Fish Market, and Terri’s Place.

As of May 14, 41% of Revere residents were fully vaccinated and 55% had received their first dose. To celebrate and inspire the rising vaccination numbers, Arrigo announced that a month of festivities is being planned for this summer for fully vaccinated residents. “Revere’s Rockin’ Rebound” will launch in the first week of June.
