COVID-19 Vaccine in Massachusetts


Update (January 2022):

Dear Members,

All Massachusetts residents five years of age and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.  Those between ages five and fifteen must receive the Pfizer vaccine, while any individual sixteen years old and older may receive any of the available vaccines.  For those who completed their primary vaccine series, a booster dose is now recommended.

You may schedule your vaccine via: https://vaxfinder.mass.gov/

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have approximately equivalent efficacy in preventing hospitalization, severe disease, and death from COVID-19. PersonalMDs does not have the COVID-19 vaccine in stock.

Please contact your physician if you have any specific concerns.

Best personal regards,
