ELIGIBLITY

In-home vaccinations are available for anyone who is unable to get to a vaccine location, including children 5-11 years old.


HOW TO SCHEDULE AN IN-HOME VACCINATION

You can call the In-Home Vaccination Central Intake Line at 833-983-0485. Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Representatives are available in both English and Spanish, and also have access to translators for over 100 languages.

You will be able to speak with a representative and you will be registered with the Commonwealth's Department of Public Health (DPH), which will handle the scheduling and administration of in-home vaccinations.

When you are registered with the MA Department of Public Health (MDPH), you will be called to schedule your appointment. In-home vaccinations will be:

  • Performed by medical professionals, following all public health guidelines

  • Tailored to meet the individual needs of the individual, as discussed on the scheduling call

  • Scheduled based on geography of residents, not on a first-come first-served basis

  • Performed using either the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, which is easier to transport and requires only one appointment, or using the two dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.

  • Individuals 5-17 years old will be offered the Pfizer vaccine
