COVID-19 UPDATE : 02.18.2021 


Dover Banner (1)

Vaccine Update

Effective today, Thursday, February 18th, the Commonwealth will move to the next group of phase two for COVID-19 Vaccinations. Individuals ages 65 and older, individuals living with two or more medical conditions that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and residents and staff of senior affordable housing are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Massachusetts. With this announcement, almost 1 million individuals are newly eligible for vaccines. 

Due to extremely high demand for appointments and limited vaccine supply, the Commonwealth advises that it may take more than a month for all eligible individuals to secure an available appointment, unless federal supply significantly increases. Residents are encouraged to keep checking the mass.gov website as appointments are added on a rolling basis. The site has crashed several times today due to high volume. Please be patient during this process. There are many people needing vaccines and vaccine supply is limited. For details on the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit www.mass.gov/covidvaccine

Please click here for more information regarding eligibility and how to book an appointment for people ages 65 and older and people living with two or more certain medical conditions. For additional assistance, contact the State's Vaccine Call Center via phone at 2-1-1 or call your local Council on Aging. Dover Council on Aging staff are available to answer questions or assist with scheduling as well at 508-315-5734. 

Please reach out if you are in need of support. We are here for you.
