Eligibility

In-home vaccinations are available for homebound people who are not able to leave their home to get to a vaccination site, even with assistance. These individuals either:

  • Have considerable difficulty and/or require significant support to leave the home for medical appointments
  • Require ambulance or two-person assistance to leave the home
  • Are not able to leave the home for medical appointments under normal circumstances

How to schedule a homebound vaccination

If you are eligible for an in-home vaccination, you can call the Homebound Vaccination Central Intake Line at (833) 983-0485

You will be able to speak with a representative who will ask questions to determine if an in-home vaccination is appropriate. If in-home vaccination is appropriate, you will be registered with the State Homebound Vaccine Provider or referred to your local Board of Health.

Some Local Boards of Health will manage a homebound vaccination program for their community and can be contacted directly regarding in-home vaccination.

The Commonwealth's In-Home Vaccine Provider, Commonwealth Care Alliance, will handle the scheduling and administration of in-home vaccinations.

When you are registered with the State Homebound Vaccine Provider, you will generally be called within three business days (but depending on demand it could take closer to one week) to schedule your appointment. In-home vaccinations will be:

  • Performed by medical professionals, following all public health guidelines
  • Tailored to meet the individual needs of the homebound individual, as discussed on the scheduling call
  • Scheduled based on geography of homebound residents, not on a first-come first-served basis
  • Performed using the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, which is easier to transport and requires only one appointment
