COVID-19 vaccine in Boston

The COVID-19 vaccine is an important tool to keep ourselves and our communities safe. Along with wearing masks, social distancing, and frequent handwashing, the vaccine will help us end the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has unfairly affected Boston's Black, Latinx, immigrant and other communities of color. Systemic racism, including in healthcare and vaccine development, also contributes to concerns and mistrust of the COVID-19 vaccine. We're committed to making information available in multiple languages, through multiple methods, and on an ongoing basis. Our goal is to help our residents make informed decisions.

Please note:
  • People ages 5-17 are now able to get the Pfizer vaccine. If you are 18 or older you can get any vaccine.
  • Not all vaccination sites will carry vaccines for ages 5-11. Please contact individual vaccine sites for more information and availability of pediatric vaccines.
  • If you are over the age of 18 you may be eligible for a vaccine booster shot. Learn more about vaccine and booster eligibility on the CDC website.
