The available COVID-19 vaccines are approved and recommended by the FDA and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices following standard testing and approval processes. By prioritizing resources and efforts, the vaccines were developed quickly and never at the expense of safety.

  • City of Cambridge COVID-19 Booster Clinics
    The City of Cambridge is holding COVID-19 booster clinics for people who live or work in Cambridge at the CambridgeSide mall.
  • Omicron Cases Have Peaked in Cambridge; Residents Urged to Continue to Take Precautions to Slow the Spread
    In Massachusetts, the “Omicron surge” peaked in early January, a few weeks earlier than had been predicted. Based on wastewater samples collected from Cambridge, Boston, and surrounding communities, the peak of Omicron infections occurred on January 5.
  • Why You Should Get Your Booster Vaccine Now

  • Baker-Polito Administration Launches Tool for Residents to Access COVID-19 Digital Vaccine Card
    The Baker-Polito Administration today announced a tool that gives residents a new way to access their COVID-19 digital vaccine card and vaccination history. The new tool, called My Vax Records, allows people who received their vaccination in Massachusetts to access their own vaccination history and generate a COVID-19 digital vaccine card, which would contain similar vaccination information to a paper CDC card. The COVID-19 digital vaccine cards produced by the system utilize the SMART Health Card platform and generate a QR code that can be used to verify vaccination. The Administration is not requiring residents to show proof of vaccination to enter any venue, but this tool will help residents who would like to access and produce a digital copy of their record.

More Information

Additional information on the COVID-19 Vaccine.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has an active inter-agency working group working to ensure an equitable and speedy distribution of COVID-19 vaccine to Massachusetts communities. View the latest vaccine updates in MA, including the vaccine prioritization plan, frequently asked questions, and information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and American Academy of Pediatrics, have put together additional Frequently Asked Questions about the vaccine which can be found as follows:

To help older residents get to their vaccine appointments, the State announced that individuals who accompany someone age 75 or older to get a vaccine at a mass vaccination site may also schedule and receive their own vaccination on the same day. They should go to mass.gov/covidvaccine and schedule two separate appointments at either the same time or adjacent. For the companion appointment, select the option ‘I am accompanying someone who is age 75+ to their vaccination appointment and my appointment is the same day.’ Transportation to vaccination sites is also available for elderly residents through Cambridge-Somerville Elder Services (SCES). For more information about the SCES vaccination transportation program, or to register for a ride, call SCES at 617-628-2601 or email info@eldercare.org.
