COVID-19 vaccinations for senior housing settings
Residents and staff of public and private low income and affordable senior housing are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. There currently are two options for residents and staff of public and private low income and affordable senior housing:
- Residents and staff of senior affordable housing may schedule individual appointments at public vaccination locations, including mass vaccination sites, pharmacies, community health centers and health care systems. To preregister for a mass vaccination or certain regional collaborative sites, or to schedule an appointment at another type of site, visit mass.gov/covidvaccine. Please note, due to limited supply and high demand it may take several weeks to schedule an appointment or be notified an appointment is available.
- Housing owners and operators may plan onsite and offsite vaccination clinics in partnership with a vaccination provider, such as the local Board of Health, an independent or retail pharmacy, a community health center, or a healthcare system. Housing owners of eligible properties who wish to organize a vaccination clinic, should email email@example.com.
