FRAMINGHAM – Framingham’s next vaccination clinic for residents +75 is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Keefe Technical High School at 750 Winter Street in Framingham.

The City received 300 doses of the Moderna vaccine from the State and will vaccinate 300 75+ Framingham residents during the Feb. 13 clinic.

Registration will open at noon Wednesday, February 10, here: https://www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine.

NOTE: Residents who attend a clinic offered by the City of Framingham Health Department will receive email instructions about how to register for dose two. The information will be sent to the email address that was entered for your dose one appointment, and the registration process is the same. The City will only receive enough dose two vaccines for the residents vaccinated at a dose one clinic.


No waiting list will be available for this clinic. Please check the State’s website frequently, as canceled appointments will show up as an open slot.

Due to high demand and a constrained supply at the State and Federal level, Framingham’s ability to provide vaccines to residents is limited. Residents who are currently eligible for the vaccine and can travel should regularly check the State’s website for clinic availability.


• Those 75+ who are unable to use or have difficulty accessing the internet to schedule vaccine appointments online can call the Massachusetts vaccine scheduling resource line at 2-1-1: Call 2-1-1 and follow the prompts to reach The Massachusetts Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Resource Line is available in English and Spanish and will have translators available to support residents in approximately 100 additional languages. Individuals ages 75 and older will be able to speak to a representative live on the phone to assist them with an appointment through the State’s online system. These representatives have the same access to appointments as on the public website; it will not give individuals preference to appointments. If no appointments are available, callers will have the option to be placed on a call back list for the mass vaccination sites. The caller will receive a call back when an appointment becomes available at a mass vaccination site, and the list will be called on a first-come, first-served basis. The Scheduling Resource Line is currently only for individuals ages 75 and older who cannot use or have difficulty accessing the internet and are unable to schedule an appointment through the online platform. The call takers can only support individuals with scheduling an appointment, and representatives cannot answer general questions about COVID-19 or provide individual health care advice. Please note, due to the high demand for appointments and limited vaccine supply, it may take weeks to secure an available appointment in a preferred location.
