COVID-19 Vaccination Guide

(Updated 07/07/21)

We have assembled a brief guide below that we hope will help you find a convenient appointment for vaccination as easily as possible.  

As of 05/12/21, everyone over the age of 12 who lives, works, or studies in the state of Massachusetts is eligible for vaccination.

 

-The state has released its own vaxfinder tool, which includes a zip code search feature.  

-The CDC recommends using their vaccine finder tool. 

-If you live in Northampton-area Hampshire county and want to be vaccinated locally, visit this website to see the available clinics.  

-If you want to be vaccinated through a local pharmacy, Big YStop & Shop, and CVS are offering a host of clinics throughout Western Massachusetts.    

-If you are struggling to book with the aforementioned tools, we recommend the comprehensive guide list developed by macovidvaxhelp to locate walk-in appointments.

-If you know someone 75+ that needs to be vaccinated and either struggles with computers or does not have internet access, you can also direct them to call 211 and select option 2, where a receptionist will assist them with scheduling an appointment for vaccination.  Alternatively, call your local Department of Public Health's (DPH) dedicated COVID line.  They will return your call within 2 business days to help you schedule an appointment for vaccination.  For Northampton area: 413-587-1219.  For Amherst area: 413-259-2425.  For Easthampton: 413-529-1400 ext 430.  To get help finding transportation to a vaccination clinic, call your local Council on Aging.
