COVID-19 Vaccine Update
COVID-19 vaccines are on everyone’s minds right now and there are many questions about how to get a vaccine. Please know the vaccines are free, and although you will need to provide some registration and insurance information, you will never be asked fora fee, your creditcard,your Social Security number or your Driver’s License number. If so, you are on the wrong website or hang up if someone calls for that information. New vaccine sites are being added every day.
The 2-1-1 Hotline
The Governor has opened a phone line 2-1-1 to help those 75 and older schedule appointments who do not have access to a computer. It is staffed Monday—Friday, from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. The Governor has also made itpossible for an individual who accompanies a person age 75 or olderto one of the four large mass vaccination sites (Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, the DoubleTree in Danvers and the Eastfield Mall in Springfield) to receive the vaccine too. An appointment for both people must be booked. More information can be found by calling 2-1-1 or by going tohttps://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-vaccinations-for-people-ages-75-and-older
