In-home vaccination available throughout the Commonwealth
Residents who are homebound and are interested in getting vaccinated are encouraged to call the In-Home Vaccination Central Intake Line at 833-983-0485. Representatives are available 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Representatives are available in both English and Spanish, and also have access to translators for over 100 languages.
Individuals will be able to speak with a representative and will be registered with the State In-Home Vaccine Provider.
The Commonwealth’s In-Home Vaccine Provider, Commonwealth Care Alliance, will handle the scheduling and administration of in-home vaccinations.
Once registered with the State In-Home Vaccine Provider, residents will generally be called within five business days to schedule their appointment.
In-home vaccinations will be:
- Performed by medical professionals, following all public health guidelines
- Tailored to meet the individual needs of the individual, as discussed on the scheduling call
- Scheduled based on geography of residents, not on a first-come first-served basis
- Performed using the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, which is easier to transport and requires only one appointment.
Individuals 12-17 years old will be offered the Pfizer vaccine.
