All COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19. Vaccinations also prevent individuals from becoming severely ill in rare instances where they become infected. If you are eligible, please do your part to keep our community safe by getting the vaccine as soon as possible.
As of Thursday, May 13, 2021, all individuals age 12 and older who live, work, or study in Massachusetts are eligible to be vaccinated.
Please note that only the Pfizer vaccine is FDA approved for use by individuals under 18 years old. Residents age age 12-17 should seek clinics administering the Pfizer vaccine. Residents age 18 and older can get any vaccine.
The CDC recommends a third dose for certain groups of people with weakened immune systems who received either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
In addition, the Pfizer COVID-19 booster is now available to:
- Individuals ages 65 or older
- Individuals ages 18-64 at risk for severe COVID-19 due to underlying medical conditions as defined by the CDC
- Individuals ages 18-64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 because of occupational or institutional settings
These Massachusetts residents are eligible to receive their Pfizer booster at least 6 months after their second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Check your eligibility.

The City of Lowell has launched a dedicated vaccine appointment assistance call center that will offer live, phone-based support to residents attempting to secure a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. The call center will be open Monday through Saturday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and is equipped to provide assistance to callers in English, Khmer, Spanish and Portuguese. Residents can reach the call center by dialing 978-228-3019.
Lowell residents may use this line for assistance in schedule appointments, for general inquiries related to the vaccine, to report a need for an at-home vaccination (for homebound residents) and to be added to the waitlist to make a vaccine appointment at the Lowell Senior Center.
As more members of the public become eligible to receive the vaccine, all health care institutions including hospitals, community health centers and private medical offices will have access to the vaccine to vaccinate their patients. Pharmacies will also be able to vaccinate their customers.
Lowell residents are also eligible to seek appointments at public sites outside of the City including pharmacies and mass vaccination sites which are equipped to handle a high volume of vaccinations.

Locations listed on this map vary frequently.

The vaccine is safe. It is not possible to get COVID-19 from the vaccine. Mild side-effects are common, but go away within a few days.
The vaccine is effective. All vaccines that have received emergency use authorization from the FDA demonstrated a high rate of effectiveness in preventing COVID-19 in clinical trials.
Health insurance is not required. You may be asked to provide health insurance information when registering, but will not be denied an appointment if you are uninsured.
Some vaccines required two shots. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a second shot. If you receive either vaccine, you should schedule your second shot before leaving your first appointment.
