Massachusetts and Wellesley are preparing for the safe, equitable, and effective distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccination timeline was developed by the Baker Polito administration and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) in consultation with the Massachusetts Advisory Group.
Doses of the vaccine will be given to residents in three phases, with the highest priority going to frontline medical workers, followed by residents and staff of long-term care facilities. The vaccine requires two doses, approximately 3-4 weeks apart.
The proposed vaccine timeline is below.
Currently, the Wellesley Health Department does not have COVID-19 vaccine clinics scheduled for the general public. For specific vaccine timeline information, go to these Mass.gov webpages:
