Visit the Vaxfinder tool at vaxfinder.mass.gov for a full list of locations to receive a vaccine or booster. Residents can narrow results to search for locations that are offering boosters. Many locations will be booking appointments out weeks in advance.

For individuals who are unable to use Vaxfinder, or have difficulty accessing the internet, the COVID-19 Vaccine Resource Line can help schedule appointments by calling 2-1-1 and following the prompts for assistance (Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday 9AM-2PM). The COVID-19 Vaccine Resource Line is available in English and Spanish and has translators available in approximately 100 additional languages.

Vaccines are widely available across the Commonwealth and are the best way to keep everyone safe, especially heading into the holiday season.

COVID-19 boosters are safe, effective, and free. Individuals do not need an ID or health insurance to access a booster, and do not need to show a vaccine card. Additional information on the COVID-booster, including FAQs, can be found at mass.gov/COVID19booster.
