COVID-19 vaccine in Boston

The COVID-19 vaccine is an important and effective 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.

Important vaccination information:
  • COVID-19 vaccinations have been approved for people ages 5 and up.
  • COVID-19 boosters are now available for ages 16 and up. Sixteen- and 17-year-olds are eligible for the Pfizer booster only. Boosters help you maintain strong immunity against COVID-19 and help prevent new variants from forming.
  • Stop in at one of our family vaccination clinics to get your vaccine or booster. Our family clinics serve people ages 5 and up!

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.
