To the best of our ability, we are striving to administer the COVID-19 vaccine according to the Massachusetts state guidelines. Massachusetts is rolling out the vaccine in three phases, as pictured below. To find out when you are eligible to receive a vaccine according to the state’s guidelines click here.
When Can I Get Vaccinated at Reliant?
UPDATE: At this time, we are providing COVID-19 vaccinations to Reliant health care workers and to our patients age 18+ who are eligible to receive the vaccine in Phase 1 only (a full list of those eligible in Phase 1 is here).
If you are a Reliant patient and eligible to receive the vaccine in Phase 1, according to the state:
- Call your Reliant Primary Care Provider’s office to schedule your COVID vaccination
- If you are not a primary care patient, but see a Reliant specialist, call your specialist’s office for help in scheduling your COVID vaccination.
COVID-19 vaccines are by appointment only, we do not offer walk-in vaccination. Vaccines will not be available at ReadyMED.
Phase 2 and beyond
The state has announced that effective February 1st, the first group in Phase 2 of its vaccination plan – people ages 75 and older – are eligible for the vaccine. However, Reliant is not yet able to offer vaccinations to this group. We are working very hard to set up a system that allows us to safely vaccinate all of our eligible patients, and obtain enough supply of vaccine to do so.
When we are able to begin scheduling Phase 2 vaccinations, we will proactively reach out to eligible patients via MyChart and through other means.
Rather than call our offices, (our phone lines are extremely busy right now!), we encourage you to check our website and your MyChart account for the latest updates. We strongly recommend patients sign-up for MyChart as it will be one way we communicate and schedule COVID-19 vaccines in the months ahead.
When Will I Be Eligible for the Vaccine?
The state is setting up several community vaccine clinics and working with local pharmacies, grocery stores and other venues. Visit www.mass.gov/covidvaccine for a list of state-sponsored vaccination sites in your community. You may find that it will be quicker to receive your vaccine at one of these community clinics.
