An Update on COVID-19 Vaccinations at South Shore Health
We have reached a remarkable milestone in the fight against COVID-19 with the delivery of vaccinations to health systems across Massachusetts and the country.
The state Department of Public Health has created allocation and distribution plans for the vaccine; there will be three phases. High-risk citizens will receive the vaccine first. This group includes clinical and non-clinical healthcare workers providing direct and COVID-facing care, and other high-risk groups.
South Shore Health’s frontline healthcare workers will be among the first to receive vaccinations because they are at high risk for contracting COVID-19.
As supplies increase, we will begin offering the vaccine to South Shore Health patients according to state and federal guidelines.
At this time, we are not scheduling appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations, nor are we creating a waiting list for future vaccinations.
We ask that you please refrain from calling to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
This applies to all South Shore Health entities, including South Shore Medical Center and Health Express.
This is a profound and exciting time in our fight against COVID-19. But, for many, patience will be required as we await for supply to catch up with demand. We are grateful for your understanding.
