State Offers In-Home Vaccinations, Including Boosters
By Grace Allen
Did you know the state has an in-home COVID-19 vaccination program? Homebound residents and people who cannot travel to a vaccine clinic for any reason, including children 5 to 17 years old, can request an appointment for medical professionals to come to them to administer a vaccine.
To schedule an in-home vaccination through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, call the In-Home Vaccination Central Intake Line at (833) 983-0485, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. A representative will discuss your specific needs and register you for a vaccine appointment, which may take up to two weeks to schedule.
Appointments are scheduled based on geography. The Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, two-dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, and boosters are all available. Children 5 to 17 years old will be offered the Pfizer vaccine.
