What does this mean for Framingham?
Framingham is eligible to order vaccine weekly to vaccinate those in Phases I and II eligible populations in communities that have been historically under-resourced and may have barriers seeking or receiving the vaccine, such as:
- Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Latinx residents
- Residents who do not speak English, or who prefer to speak in another language
- Residents who do not have access to public transportation or who have barriers getting to a vaccination site
- Residents with disabilities and others who have access and functional needs
No. Now that more vaccine is available, many vaccination sites are accepting walk-ins. Please reference vaccination site information on the State's website for appointment information/requirements.
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 State of Massachusetts is referencing travel information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Reference the CDC's requirements and recommendations for:
What about booster shots? Is the City of Framingham Providing booster doses?
Health experts are recommending COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for all Americans, regardless of age, eight months after they received their second dose. The Framingham Health Department and Office of Public Health Nursing DO NOT have booster dose vaccine at this time. Currently, only select immunocompromised individuals are eligible for an additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine which are available at commercial dispensing sites such as CVS. Please consult your PCP to determine your eligibility.
Should I be following guidance or protocols once I am fully vaccinated?
