Purchasing vaccines and vaccine availability

Table of Contents

Providers wishing to order flu vaccine for private purchase

The National Influenza Vaccine Availability Tracking System (IVATS) assists providers wishing to privately purchase flu vaccine. IVATS identifies available doses of influenza vaccine by formulation and distributor/vendor throughout the season.

Location of flu and adult vaccination services

Flu vaccination clinics are listed on vaccinefinder.org and promoted by the Massachusetts Health Officers Association (MHOA). MDPH urges agencies to post their clinics on this website. Many boards of health (BOHs) may have clinics that make flu and other vaccines available to both adults and children. BOHs can be contacted individually for questions about possible flu vaccination clinics in Massachusetts municipalities, including the age groups served.

State-supplied Influenza Vaccine Formulation Table

Massachusetts State-Supplied Influenza Vaccine: MDPH created a table outlining the current state-supplied influenza formulations to ensure providers use the age-appropriate formulation and dose for each patient.
