State Provides Update On Vaccine Booster Availability


HYANNIS – Following recent announcements by the CDC on the availability of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 boosters, the state has outlined how eligible Massachusetts residents can find access to locations providing booster shots.

As per the CDC, Pfizer and Moderna boosters are available to individuals 65 years and older, and individuals 18+ with underlying medical conditions, who live in long term care facilities, or who work or live in high-risk settings.
