We are excited to finally be getting the COVID-19 vaccine out and into people’s arms so that we can end this pandemic! Please see below for answers to some of the common questions we have received. When can I get the vaccine? Massachusetts is using a tiered approach to determining who is able to get the vaccine and when. As the different groups are allowed to be vaccinated, Hamilton will be utilizing Code Red messaging, updating our website, and posting on social media. If you haven’t signed up for Code Red, please go here to do so: https://www.hamiltonma.gov/hamilton-mobile-alerts/ Where can I get the vaccine? Early on, the vaccine was only being administered through hospitals. As roll out continues, the vaccine is being administered through a number of ways including hospital affiliates, doctor’s offices, CVS and Walgreens pharmacies, planned state run mega sites and Local Boards of Health. When your group is eligible, you will be able to go online and find a site to get vaccinated: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/when-can-i-get-the-covid-19-vaccine. The Commonwealth has provided the below map showing COVID-19 vaccine locations available in Massachusetts for currently eligible recipients:
The towns of Topsfield, Hamilton, Wenham, and Manchester are partnering together to help get the vaccine into our residents’ arms as efficiently and quickly as possible. Currently, we are utilizing space at the Topsfield Fairgrounds, which has been donated for the cause, and we are utilizing volunteers from the Medical Reserve Corps as well as our EMS services, public health nurses, Health Agents, Administrators and Health Directors to plan and run vaccine clinics. It is a big job, and it requires a lot of cooperation and planning, but we are all are working together to get everyone vaccinated. Please note: This will not be the only site available, but we are committed to offering this option until it is no longer needed! If you are interested in Topsfield Fairgrounds, you will be able to sign up at this site once the clinic is announced: https://www.maimmunizations.org/clinic/search I am unable to leave my home. How do I get vaccinated? If you are homebound and need assistance to get the vaccine, we can help you. Please call the Hamilton Public Health Nurse at 978-290-9618 or the Council on Aging at 978-468-5595.
