COVID-19 Vaccines

All Massachusetts residents age 12 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. You can search for vaccination locations close to you by visiting the state’s vaxfinder website or calling 211.

The Omicron variant of the SARS CoV2 (COVID-19) disease, which was first identified in continental Europe and Southern Africa, has now been confirmed in Massachusetts. Initial data suggests that the Omicron variant may be slightly more transmissible than the Delta variant. 

The good news is that early evidence shows that getting a COVID-19 booster likely provides effective protection against Omicron. We are keeping a watchful eye on the rising number of cases and continue to follow CDC and state guidance to keep our patients and staff safe.  

The following are effective steps that you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones:

  • Regular hand hygiene.
  • Wear a mask when in public indoor spaces or crowded outdoor spaces.
  • Stay 6 feet apart while you are unmasked eating or drinking
  • Get a complete COVID vaccine series with a booster vaccine! If you are a Fenway Health patient, you can get your initial vaccine or booster dose at Fenway Health. Check here for information on COVID-19 vaccines and booster doses.
  • You can also use the state Vaxfinder Website to help find a convenient location to receive vaccines or booster shot.  
  • Stay home if you experience COVID-19 symptoms.

 

We will continue to monitor statewide COVID-19 numbers and Omicron information as it becomes available and provide updates to help keep our community safe.

At Fenway Health, we are currently providing all of the following COVID-19 vaccines:

Please remember the following tips to ensure a smooth vaccination appointment:

  1. Please wear a t-shirt underneath, so that nursing staff can easily vaccinate your arm.
  2. Please bring your insurance card just in case your demographics and insurance information need to be updated; please note that lack of insurance will not keep you from getting vaccinated, and vaccination will always be performed at no cost to patients/clients. You should never be asked to pay for your vaccination appointment or your vaccine. You should never be asked for other personal details like a credit card number or your social security number.
  3. If you do not normally take drugs like ibuprofen/naproxen/acetaminophen, please do not start taking it before your vaccination appointment. If these drugs are part of your daily regimen, please do not stop taking them just because of the vaccine.
  4. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  5. If you have already received a COVID-19 vaccine, please bring your vaccination card with you.
  6. Familiarize yourself with the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Fact Sheet and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for the vaccine you will receive:

The state of Massachusetts has recently launched their “COVID-19 SMART Health Card.” This is way for people who have received their COVID-19 vaccination in Massachusetts to obtain proof of their vaccination status online. The COVID-19 digital vaccine card provides a QR code* that can be stored on your mobile device, so you don’t have to carry a paper vaccination card.

When filling out the state’s MY Vax Records online request form, please fill in all required fields. Try using both your email and phone number to retrieve your vaccination record. Once your request is complete and has been submitted through the form, you will receive a link either by email or text message (depending on how you searched for your record) to download the COVID-19 SMART Health Card QR code.

Fenway Health is working with the state to provide complete COVID-19 vaccination records for everyone that we have vaccinated.

What should I do if my vaccination record is not available through My Vax Records?

If you received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine at Fenway Health and your records are not available on the state’s website at this time (after searching using both your phone and email), please try submitting another request through the state’s website in about a week.

If you were vaccinated someplace other than Fenway Health, please contact the provider who administered your vaccination.

*Note that all of your vaccination records (flu, COVID-19, etc.) will appear online; however, only your COVID-19 vaccination records will appear by using the QR code.
