Getting a Covid vaccine is our best chance at stopping the pandemic. You can get the vaccine if you are 75+ AND if you are a caregiver for someone 75+. But navigating the various systems that exist to sign up to receive the Covid Vaccine can be confusing. We want to help people get signed up. You can help by checking in with your older friends, family members or neighbors to see if they have plans to receive the vaccine.
Here are our tips:
- Call your Primary Care Physician to see if you can get the vaccine there. Some doctors offices are administering vaccines themselves. Your PCP will tell you what you should do.
- Call your local Senior Center or Council on Aging to find out if they have any tips/information. The Worcester Senior Center serves individuals who live or work in Grafton, Holden, Millbury, Shrewsbury, West Boylston, Worcester.
- Some CVS, Walgreens & Wegmans pharmacies are offering vaccines but you need to check with them to see if you qualify and/or to register ahead of time.
- Check with your local hospital as some are administering the vaccine on-site or in partnership with other organizations. For example, St. Vincent’s will be administering vaccines at Worcester State University. HERE is one list of vaccine sites, dates and availability.
- Large sites are available to go to as well but again, make sure you register ahead. Click o
