[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update February 5

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced today that a Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line is now available for the 75+ community who do not have access to or do not feel comfortable using the internet. Please note, this call line does not have access to additional appointments and people who feel comfortable using the internet should continue to look for appointments using the website.

To use the vaccine scheduling call line:

Call 211, press prompt for "help scheduling COVID vaccine"

   - The Hours of operation for this helpline are Monday-Friday  8:30am-5pm
- There are more than 500 representatives staffing phone lines daily and operators are available who speak English, Spanish and have more than 100+ languages available via translators.
- Representatives will be scheduling appointments at mass vaccination sites through the website
   - If no appointments are available, the caller can be added to a call-back list and will be contacted when the mass vaccination sites have additional availability.

Please know that as this is a new resource from the state and it is likely that wait times will be significant.
