COVID-19 vaccine in Boston

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

Important Vaccine Information

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.

  • COVID-19 vaccinations have been approved for people ages 5 and up.
  • COVID-19 boosters are now available for ages 5 and up. Young people between 5 and 17 are eligible for the Pfizer booster only. 
  • Second boosters are available for people 50 and older, those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, and those who received a J&J vaccine and are not immunocompromised.

Learn more about BPHC's COVIID-19 vaccine recommendations.
