How can I pre-register for a covid-19 vaccine? Is every vaccine site accepting pre-registrations?
Massachusetts residents can pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccination only at mass vaccination sites. Follow this link to pre-register. Once you are pre-registered, each week, you will receive a weekly status update to confirm you are still on a waiting list, and you will have the opportunity to opt-out if you have a scheduled appointment elsewhere.
What does it mean to be fully vaccinated?
People are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 if they have received two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines or a single dose of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine more than 14 days ago. Please Note: This guidance does not apply to fully vaccinated individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19.
Now that I am fully vaccinated, can I still get COVID-19?
While vaccines are highly effective there is still a chance you can get COVID-19 even after you get the vaccine. If you develop respiratory symptoms like runny nose, cough, or loss of sense of smell or taste, these are not side effects of the vaccine and you should consider getting tested for COVID-19 or talk to your healthcare provider. Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others. You may wish to check with your employer about how this will impact your work.
The Travel Advisory for all visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, to quarantine for 10 days upon their arrival does not apply to people who are fully vaccinated. However, if you are fully vaccinated, and you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or you were in close contact with a positive case, you should isolate yourself from others and contact your healthcare provider or seek testing.
Should I be following guidance or protocols once I am fully vaccinated?
Yes. Please reference guidance information from the MDPH for people who are fully vaccinated again COVID-19 here.
