COVID-19 Vaccine: When, Where & Now What?
When can I get Vaccinated?
COVID-19 Vaccinations are underway in Massachusetts. Learn when you are eligible to get vaccinated.

Where can I get Vaccinated?
  • COVID-19 Vaccine Finder: Search for appointments at pharmacies, health care providers, and other community locations. Appointment availability is updated daily. Some local vaccination sites may only be open to residents of select town. Check listing to see if the site is restricted.
  • Pre-register for mass vaccination sites: Preregister to be notified when it's your turn to schedule an appointment at one of 7 mass vaccination locations: Eastfield Mall in Springfield, Hynes Convention Center, Gillette Stadium, Reggie Lewis Center, DoubleTree Hotel in Danvers, Natick Mall and former Circuit City in Dartmouth. More locations will be added in April.
  • Vaccination locations and bus routes in the PVTA service area: Find a list of COVID-19 vaccination sites in the PVTA service area and which bus routes service them.
Vaccine Scheduling Help Lines
Baystate Health has compiled information about local contacts that offer assistance with vaccine scheduling. Click here to see the list.
I've been Vaccinated, Now What?
People who have been fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose) can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic;
  • Gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask
  • Gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one household, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19

Information may change from one day to the next. For the most up-to-date information, visit the state's vaccination page.
Get Tested to Control the Spread
Should I get tested?
COVID-19 testing is still an important part of combating the spread of the virus. You should get a test for COVID-19 if:
  • You develop any symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild
  • You are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to get tested unless you have symptoms.
