caution sign The information on this page may be outdated as it was published 3 years ago.

The Baker-Polito Administration announced that all residents in Phase One of the state vaccine distribution plan are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, effective immediately. Vaccinating the populations in Phase One now will preserve the Commonwealth’s healthcare system, protect many of the most vulnerable residents; and ensure the vaccine is distributed equitably.

Eligible residents can now make appointments to receive vaccine at more than 150 locations across the state including first responder only sites, the newly opened mass vaccination site at Gillette Stadium, regional vaccination sites and participating CVS Health and Walgreens pharmacies. Additional mass vaccination sites, pharmacy sites, and community clinic sites will open in more locations on a rolling basis.

A full vaccination site map can be found here. Residents are urged to check back often for additional vaccination locations.

Residents eligible for vaccine immediately under Phase One include:

  • COVID-facing healthcare workers
  • Long term care facilities (LTCF) residents and staff
  • First Responders (EMS, Fire, Police)
  • Congregate Care setting residents and staff (including corrections and shelters)
  • Home-based healthcare workers
  • Non-COVID-facing healthcare workers

Commonwealth’s Self Attestation Form

All residents must demonstrate their eligibility to receive the vaccine. Eligibility can be established by self-attestation. 

Most pharmacies such as CVS Health, require individuals to attest to their eligibility as part of the online appointment scheduling process.

All other sites will accept the Commonwealth’s Self Attestation form, which can be filled out online. Residents should be prepared to present this form in a hard copy or electronically at their appointment.

All residents should bring one of the following forms of identification to your appointment:
