COVID-19 Vaccine Timeline and Eligibility Information

Brothers and Sisters,
As you may be aware, the Baker-Polito Administration announced this morning the timeline for all remaining Massachusetts residents to be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.  The full timeline is available at www.mass.gov/COVIDVaccinePhases.  All Massachusetts residents can preregister to book an appointment at a mass vaccination site at www.mass.gov/COVIDVaccine
The next group of residents will become eligible on March 22nd.  This group includes employees in certain fields, including transportation and transit.  Some, but not all, MassDOT employees will be eligible in this group based on their occupation.  Employees who are currently required to work in-person on a regular basis, including those who are required to work in-person on certain days and work remotely on other days, are eligible under this category.  Employees who are not required to work in-person are not eligible under this category, although they may be eligible based on other factors.
Employees are also reminded that they may be currently eligible or become eligible on March 22nd or April 5th based on other factors such as age and medical conditions.  Vaccine eligibility will be expanded to all residents 16 years of age or older on April 19th.  
In addition to preregistration, the federal government distributes vaccines to CVS Health sites as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Partnership as well as to certain Massachusetts federally qualified community health centers.  Employees looking to book appointments across any of these providers should visit mass.gov/COVIDvaccine to learn more.
Thank you,
In Solidarity,
