COVID-19 Information

[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccine Update for Ages 75+


Wellesley residents age 75 or older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as part of Phase 2, group 1 beginning on Monday, February 1. This start date was determined by the State and announced by the Governor.  

There are many opportunities to be vaccinated. Eligible individuals can begin registering on Wednesday, January 27 for appointments starting on February 1. Appointment scheduling will be ongoing. Please check back frequently for updated locations and available appointment times. 

You can find nearby vaccination locations on the State COVID-19 vaccine site map and register for appointments using the State scheduling site 

Vaccines are also available to eligible residents at specific CVS Health and Walgreens retail pharmacies. Locations and scheduling information for those sites are available on the CVS website

Please Note: The Commonwealth has reduced the supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses for local health departments. As a result, currently there are no immediate dates scheduled for community clinics in Wellesley for those 75 or older.

As the vaccine supply and allocations increase, the Health Department hopes to host local clinics and will notify residents through many sources (local media, phone calls and text messages, town websites and news and announcements). The Health Department is not maintaining a list of residents looking for vaccinations.

When registering for COVID-19 vaccine appointments through the State, you must present proof of eligibility to receive the vaccine. Some sites require you to attest to your eligibility as part of the online appointment scheduling process. 

Other sites require the Commonwealth's Self-Attestation form, which can be filled out online or printed and completed. Residents should be prepared to show this form at their appointment. 

Additional COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The State has revised the timeline for upcoming groups in Phase 2. This reflects several priorities including protecting our most vulnerable, maintaining health care system capacity, and addressing inequity in health care access. Go to the State When Can I Get the COVID-19 Vaccine webpages to learn where you fit into the upcoming eligible groups.
