COVID-19: Massachusetts Announces Homebound Vaccination Program
Walecka Law, P.C., along with many others, has been advocating and encouraging for the Commonwealth to make reasonable accommodations for seniors and people with disabilities when necessary to ensure equal access to the COVID-19 vaccine. We’re thrilled to report that the Commonwealth and local Boards of Health have developed a statewide program to offer in-home vaccinations for homebound individuals who cannot leave their home to get to a vaccination site.

Due to logistical considerations around vaccine expiration while in transit, people receiving in-home vaccinations will be grouped based on geography, and not on a first-come, first-serve basis. It may take individuals several weeks to get an in-home vaccination due to these logistical challenges. For individuals who need assistance preregistering or scheduling an appointment at a vaccination site, please refer to 2-1-1 (877-211-6277).
