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 Pfizer vaccine is authorized for emergency use by individuals under 18 years old. Residents age age 12-18 should seek clinics administering Pfizer vaccine.

Make an Appointment By Phone
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.

Eligible residents encountering difficulty making vaccine appointments using the State's online system may also make an appointment by phone by calling the Mass Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line at 2-1-1. The resource line is available Monday-Friday, 8:30AM-5:00PM.

Other Vaccination Sites in Massachusetts
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.
