Governor Baker announced a new policy today allowing one caregiver per 75+ person to also schedule their own appointment for a vaccine at the same time in an effort to support more 75 and older people getting vaccinated. Caregivers will be required to self-attest that they are accompanying a 75+ person.

Appointments for 75+ people and their caregivers should be scheduled for the same day, as close together as possible. If a caregiver is accompanying a 75+ person to their second dose, they may still schedule an appointment for themselves for their first dose, and then come alone to their second dose appointment.

COVID-19 vaccine appointments are available at Lynn Tech for MA Phase 1 and 75+ residents, and one caregiver, who live or work in Lynn & Nahant or are Lynn Community Health Center Patients: Seniors 75+ can call 2-1-1 to make an appointment Mon-Fri 8:30am-5:00pm
