MA COVID VAX eligibility info & appointments: Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative & Mass.gov Vaccine details webpage
Please note that there are currently more individuals eligible for vaccination in Massachusetts than there is vaccine. The Berkshire County Vaccine Team will continue to add appointments & clinic dates as more vaccine becomes available. We ask for everyone’s patience as we get to everyone in turn.
To register for a vaccination appointment you can go to www.maimmunizations.org and search for a clinic or you can go to https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-vaccination-locations-for-individuals-in-eligible-groups-and-phases and click on one of the locations to get to the registration page. If you do not have Internet access, you can call the Council on Aging in Williamstown (413-458-8250) for assistance.
You can expect to be at the clinic for at least 35-40 minutes. This allows you to register, be vaccinated, and complete the required medical assessment period after you receive the vaccine. This assures that there are no adverse reactions.
For those who are not yet eligible for vaccination, you can learn more about the phases and when you might be eligible for a vaccination at https://www.mass.gov/info-details/when-can-i-get-the-covid-19-vaccine. Please note that this webpage is updated at least twice a week.
If you are a veteran, you may be able to get a vaccination at the VA clinic in Northampton. Please call (413) 584-4040 for more information and to make an appointment. All veteran vaccinations are being done in Northampton. The VA is prioritizing veterans by age, starting with those 85 and older, and moving to lower age groups as they get vaccine.
There is currently no way to register for an appointment if you are not yet eligible for vaccination; you will be contacted by your physician or notified via the media, your municipality or your employer when registration information is available.
