Biden-Harris Administration To Deliver 155,000 First COVID Doses To Massachusetts This Week

PLEASE SHARE

BOSTON – The Baker-Polito administration announced this week, the Commonwealth will receive a constrained supply of about 155,000 first doses.

This is an increase as the federal government had only been supplying about 135,000 a week.

This week, first doses and second dose allocations (total doses), were divided among providers as follows:

  • Mass vaccination sites: 83,000
  • Hospital Providers (both private and public): 79,000
  • Regional Collaboratives (12 total): 38,000
  • Community Health Centers: 25,000
  • Local Boards of Health (to complete 2nd dose appointments and support 20 disproportionately impacted communities, including Framingham): 25,000

Weekly allocations are subject to change based on federal availability, demand from providers, and obligations to meet second doses. Providers have 10 days to use their doses.

In addition to the state allocation, the federal government distributes vaccines to CVS Health sites as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Partnership as well as to certain Massachusetts federally qualified community health centers. These quantities fluctuate on a weekly basis and are not counted as part of the state’s weekly allocation.

This week, 95,000 first and second doses have been allocated to the retail pharmacy program and 19,000 Johnson & Johnson doses have been allocated to the federally qualified health centers.

Individuals looking to book appointments across any of these providers should visit www.mass.gov/covidvaccine to learn more.
