Covid Vaccine Eligibility Update
The Massachusetts vaccine rollout is moving right along. The following groups are eligible in the next wave:
Starting 4/5/21: people 55 and over; people with one medical condition
Starting 4/19/21: people 16 and over
For a detailed list of groups who are currenly eligible to receive a vaccine, as well as qualifying medical conditions, please visit: www.mass.gov/covidvaccine.
We ask that you do NOT call your primary care provider. You will NOT need copies of medical records or a note from your health care provider to confirm you are eligible for these groups.
However, please be aware that due to limited vaccine supply, it could take more than a month for all newly eligible individuals to secure an available appointment.
Please visit COVID-19 Vaccine Finder to search for vaccination sites nearby by entering ZIP code, city, or town name. Individuals can also filter vaccination location results by site type, differentiating mass vaccination locations and those run by local health departments, retail pharmacies, or health care institutions. You can also schedule an appointment by calling 2-1-1.
We all have to continue to work together to stop the spread of Covid-19. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and continue to social distance when appropriate. As always, if you have any questions about scheduling the vaccine, eligibility, distribution locations, etc, please visit www.mass.gov/covidvaccine.
