Effective Monday, May 24, the Administration will expand the state’s Homebound Vaccination Program to support in-home vaccinations for all eligible residents who have difficulty leaving home to travel to a vaccine site.
To register for an in-home vaccination, people may call (833) 983-0485. The line is open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM with representatives who speak English and Spanish, as well as translation services available in 100+ languages.
After registering, individuals will be contacted within five business days by the state’s Homebound Vaccine Provider, Commonwealth Care Alliance, to schedule an appointment.
The quickest way to get vaccinated remains to schedule an appointment at a vaccination site by visiting VaxFinder.mass.gov
The Homebound Program is primarily using Johnson & Johnson vaccines, a safe and effective vaccine requiring only one dose. For individuals 12-17 years old who are homebound and would need significant support to leave the home to get to a medical appointment, the Homebound Program is offering Pfizer vaccines. Homebound youth are encouraged to register for the Homebound Program by Friday, May 28 to ensure that an in-home vaccination can be scheduled during the month of June.
