The Commonwealth of Massachusetts continues to distribute COVID-19 vaccine in accordance with its Three Phase distribution plan that started in December 2020 and will continue through June 2021.  Each phase has different tiers within it.  The plan is based upon guidance from the CDC and the MA COVID-19 Advisory Group.  The Governor announced Phase Two of the Commonwealth’s distribution plan has started and individuals 75 years or older will now be the first priority group in Phase Two, and individuals 65 years and older have been moved into the second priority group, in addition to individuals with two comorbidities. Starting on February 1 individuals age 75 or older can be vaccinated. Vaccination sites can be found on the Commonwealth’s Inter-Active Map of Vaccine sites: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-vaccine-locations-for-individuals-currently-eligible-to-be-vaccinated.

The state has designed this plan to address populations that are at the most risk of complications such as COVID-19.  While we understand there are many people with questions and who want to be vaccinated, the Town must follow the State’s vaccination plan. The Town does not have a supply of the vaccine but for the past several weeks has requested vaccine from the State but has not received any doses.  Once we receive a distribution elgible residents will access the COVID-19 Vaccine according to the state’s phased distribution plan.
