VACCINE UPDATES

Governor Baker has announced the following schedule for the remaining groups in MA’s vaccination plan: 

  1. March 22nd: Individuals 60+ and workers in certain sectors including transit, grocery, utility, food and agriculture, sanitation, public works, and public health workers. The full list of eligible workers can be found here.

  2. April 5th:  Individuals 55+ and people with one certain medical condition. The list of medical conditions can be found here

  3. April 19th: General Public (16+)

Who is Already Eligible: 

  • K-12 educators, childcare workers, and school staff

  • Individuals 65+, those with two or more medical conditions listed here, residents and staff of public and private low income and affordable senior housing

  • Individuals 75+ and caretakers accompanying them to get a vaccination at a mass vaccination site

  • All of Phase 1

 

Everyone can preregister for the seven mass vaccination sites here. You do not need to be eligible right now to preregister. The Baker Administration is looking to add more locations for preregistration in April.

 

Family members and caregivers will be allowed to fill out the form on behalf of older residents and others, as needed. Those who are unable to access the internet or need help to fill out the online forms can also call 211 to preregister. We are told you won’t be limited to the site nearest you and that there will be at least 2 sites that would be used in the calculation for “nearest your home”.
