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 Y, Stop & 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.
