Today Governor Baker is announcing the vaccine eligibility dates for remaining residents and certain worker groups. The Commonwealth’s detailed timeline adheres to the original timeline for the three vaccine eligibility phases announced in December.
Timeline for remaining groups:
- March 22nd : Residents 60+ and certain workers
- April 5th : Residents 55+ and residents with one certain medical condition
- April 19th: General public ages 16 years of age and older
The administration has received assurances from the federal government that an increased vaccine supply will be available to states soon.
Depending on supply, it could take weeks for people to be notified that an appointment is available at a mass vaccination site.
People can pre-register to book an appointment at a mass vaccination site at mass.gov/COVIDVaccine. Appointments will be offered based on eligibility and available appointments nearby.
