Governor Baker has announced the dates for remaining groups to be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
The timeline adheres to the original schedule for the three vaccine phases that was announced in December 2020.
The eligibility dates for remaining groups are as follows:
- March 22: Residents 60+ and certain workers
- April 5: Residents 55+ and residents with one certain medical condition
- April 19: General public ages 16 years and older
The State is reassuring residents that an increase in the vaccine supply from the federal government will be available soon. Depending on the supply, it could take a few weeks for people to be notified of available appointments at mass vaccination sites.
People can pre-register to book an appointment at these sites. Appointments will be offered based on eligibility and available appointments nearby.
Eligible residents are also encouraged to check for appointments at CVS, Walgreens, and Wegmans pharmacies as those sites are part of the federal retail pharmacy program and new appointments are added on a regular basis.
