COVID-19 Vaccine Guide

Updated July 2021

THE MASSACHUSSETTS COVID-19 VACCINE PREREGISTRATION SYSTEM IS NOW CLOSED


The preregistration form at vaccinesignup.mass.gov will be closed to new submissions on Tuesday, May 25. All remaining people still in the system were contacted with an opportunity to book appointments before closing out the system on May 31.

The Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Vaccine Finder at vaxfinder.mass.gov will remain available. There are over 900 locations available with thousands of appointments in every region of Massachusetts. Users can also find information about no wait, walk-up appointments at select locations, accessibility information, and can plan for their appointment using the MBTA trip planner tool. Users can also filter by type of vaccine offered, to ensure that people under 18 or their parents can search for locations that only offer the Pfizer vaccine. Users can also call 211 to access the Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line for help booking an appointment.

People age 12 and older who live, work, or study in Massachusetts can get vaccinated.

The PFizer vaccine is currently the only option for people under 18 and requires parental/ legal guardian consent.

Use VaxFinder.mass.gov to search for appointments at pharmacies, health care providers, and other community locations.

A public access phone line is available for assistance.

Call 2-1-1 and follow prompts to reach

The Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line

Hours of Operations:

Monday to Friday

8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

The Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line is available in English and Spanish and will have translators available to support residents in approximately 100 additional languages. Eligible residents able to speak to a representative live on the phone to assist them with an appointment through the state’s online system. These representatives have the same access to appointments as on the public website; it will not give individuals access to additional appointments. If no appointments are available, callers will have the option to be placed on a call back list for the mass vaccination sites. The caller will receive a call back when an appointment becomes available for them at a mass vaccination site, and the list will be called on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line is for eligible residents who cannot use or have difficulty accessing the internet and therefore are unable to schedule an appointment through the online platforms. The Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line is only able to support individuals with scheduling an appointment and representatives are not able to answer general questions about COVID-19 or provide individual health care advice.
