Concord's Health Division is aware of the CDC guideline revisions regarding vaccination of community members 65+. The Town is following the Massachusetts Department of Public Health's (MDPH) distribution plan being developed by the State and is waiting for instructions on the next vaccination phases.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be made available to various segments of the population in accordance with the MDPH COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. This page is updated frequently, so check back often for more information about where you and your loved ones fit in the plan and where and when you may be able to be vaccinated.
The state is currently in Phase 1 of this vaccine distribution plan.
As of January 11, MDPH has provided the Concord Health Division with a small amount of vaccine to hold a vaccination clinic for town-employed First Responders (Fire, Police, EMS) from six towns: Bedford, Carlisle, Concord, Lincoln, Maynard and Sudbury.
The Concord Health Division does not have access to any additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine at this time. To date, MDPH has not provided any information how vaccine will be supplied to later groups in Phase 1 and other groups in Phase 2. The state plan for distribution of the vaccine is evolving and it will likely take several weeks for us to know more.
