COVID-19 Vaccine Guide

Updated 2/18/21

Massachusetts has launched a new COVID-19 vaccine finder at vaxfinder.mass.gov.

All vaccination sites are listed, but appointment availability is currently only shown for mass vaccination and some local board of health sites. For locations not providing their availability, click "Details" to visit their scheduling link for appointments. State health officials said they will be working to add more locations over the next few weeks as the tool improves.

Mass vaccination sites account for about half of appointments.

Steps to book an appointment:

1. Visit https://vaxfinder.mass.gov/

2. Select a location on the map or using the zip code search function, schedule an appointment online.

3. Bring your ID and your insurance card to your appointment. (You are not required to have either of these.)

4. Fill out the self-attestation form, which will need to be presented at their appointment.

Due to extremely high demand for appointments and severely limited vaccine supply from the federal government, it may take several weeks to secure an available appointment. Residents are encouraged to keep checking the website as appointments are added on a rolling basis.

Each Thursday, new appointments will be available for mass vaccination sites.

This website is a massive improvement to the original site. If you have problems with the site, then continue with the steps below.

Who is currently eligible for a COVID-19 Vaccine?

All Phase One eligible priority groups are now eligible for vaccinations, which includes all health care workers, residents and staff of long term care facilities, and congregate care facilities, home health care workers and non-COVID-facing health care workers and first responders.

As of February 1, residents age 75 and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Massachusetts.

As of February 11, an individual who is accompanying a person age 75 or older to get the vaccine may schedule their own appointment to be vaccinated on the same day (ONLY AT MASS VACCINATION SITES, like GILLETTE).

As of February 18 individuals age 65 or older, individuals with two or more specific medical conditions, listed here, and residents and staff of public and private low income and affordable senior housing are eligible to receive this vaccine.

Directions to Schedule Two Appointments (for a 75+ resident & a caregiver):

Individuals can go to mass.gov/covidvaccine and schedule two separate appointments at either the same time or adjacent.

For the companion appointment, select the option ‘I am accompanying someone who is age 75+ to their vaccination appointment and my appointment is the same day.'

If individuals are unable to use or have difficultly accessing the internet, they may call 2-1-1 for assistance booking both appointments.

Only one caregiver is permitted to schedule an appointment with the 75+ resident. A caregiver may receive their first dose of the vaccine if the 75+ resident is receiving their second dose.

How do eligible residents schedule a vaccine appointment?

As of February 1, eligible residents have to set up their vaccine appointments online.

Eligible residents can search for vaccine sites by zip code on the State COVID-19 Vaccinations Location Finder, or you can use any of the available location links below.

Appointments at most of these locations fill up fast. Eligible residents should check back daily, if they cannot get an appointment are their desired location.

Gillette is the closest site to the district and has the most available appointments.

Constituents can also scroll past these locations for further options for scheduling.

How can I receive assistance in making an appointment?

Aging Services Access Points (ASAPs) can assist individuals 75 and older with making an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine.

North Attleboro, Attleboro & Mansfield residents, 75+, can contact the Bristol Aging Services Access Point at:

(508) 675-2101

Additional assistance services provided in the Alternate Vaccine Appointment Options Section, at the bottom of this page.

A public access phone line is NOW 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. Individuals ages 75 and older will be 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 currently only for individuals ages 75 and older 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.
