COVID-19 Vaccine Update

The local Watertown Health Department clinics are over for now due to changes in the Commonwealth’s vaccine distribution process. Please call the Mass Vaccines Hotline at 2-1-1 or visit https://www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine for information about vaccine sites, age group eligibility, and companion vaccine sitesPlease ask your families or friends who are computer-savvy to assist you with scheduling an appointment at area clinics.

Is there a cost and do I have to have insurance?

There is no cost for a vaccination, and if you do not have insurance, you are still eligible to sign up and receive a vaccination. If you are asked for a credit card, a fee, your Social Security number, or your Driver’s License number, you are on the wrong website or hang up on the caller.

I am a Veteran, is there another way to get a vaccine appointment?

The VA has been reaching out to Veterans, but please call your VA provider or Patrick George, Watertown’s VSO at (617) 972-6416 for information about the VA Health System and what they are providing to Veterans who meet specific criteria.
