The COVID-19 vaccine distribution timeline was developed with consultation from the Massachusetts Vaccine Advisory Group. The timeline prioritizes: protecting our most vulnerable, maintaining health care system capacity, and addressing inequities in health care access and COVID-19 burden.

We are currently in Phase 1 of this timeline, as highlighted above in the graphic. Healthcare workers who care directly for COVID-19 patients are being vaccinated where they are employed. Long term care facilities’ residents and staff are being vaccinated as part of the Federal Pharmacy Partnership Program, which facilitates on-site vaccinations at no cost to the facilities.
Vaccinations for first responders began on Jan. 11. For COVID-19 vaccine locations and more information, click here.
