The Commonwealth’s preregistration system makes it easier to request and schedule an appointment. People can preregister for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at a mass vaccination or certain regional collaborative locations only. More locations will continue to be added.

Once you sign up for preregistration, you’ll receive weekly status updates. You can opt out at any time if you find an appointment elsewhere.

Due to constrained federal supply, it will take several weeks to be notified about available appointments. Once an appointment is available, you’ll be contacted with the opportunity to book the appointment and have 24 hours to accept it.

How to preregister

To preregister and be notified about available vaccine appointments you will need the following: 

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Contact information
  • Preferred method of communication like email, text, or phone call
  • Option to ask for help scheduling over the phone
  • Information about eligibility (living situations, medical conditions, occupations)

To help older people and others who are unable to use the form, family members, caregivers, or other companions can fill out the form on behalf of someone else. People who do not have internet access or someone to fill the form out for them can call 2-1-1 to preregister.

Massachusetts receives a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses from the federal government each week. Due to high demand and very limited supply, there are a limited number of appointments available for eligible people. Please keep in mind that it could take several weeks or longer to be contacted with an opportunity to schedule your appointment.

What happens next

After you fill out the preregistration form, your information will be saved and you’ll receive a Registration ID onscreen and a confirmation notification through your preferred method of communication (email, text message, or phone call). If you don't receive the confirmation through text or email, please check your junk or spam folders.

Each week, you will receive a weekly status update to:

  • Confirm you are still on the list
  • Give you a chance to opt out if you have scheduled an appointment elsewhere
Once notified, you have 24 hours to schedule an appointment.

When an appointment is available for you, you will be contacted through your preferred method of communication.  

  • If it’s a text message or email, you’ll be sent a booking link to choose an appointment from all the available locations.
  • If you receive a phone message with your Registration ID, write it down and call 2-1-1. Select Option 1 to talk to an operator to schedule your appointment.
  • If you are 75 or older and would like someone to go with you, please call 2-1-1 and to book an appointment for yourself and your companion.
  • You’ll have 24 hours to schedule an appointment. If you do nothing within 24 hours, you will go back onto the list to wait for another appointment.

Please note that the COVID-19 vaccines are free. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will never ask you for your bank account number, password, or other financial information.
