The Arc of Massachusetts has been advocating for the Commonwealth to make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities when necessary to ensure equal access to the COVID-19 vaccine. We’re thrilled to report that the Commonwealth and local Boards of Health have developed a statewide program to offer in-home vaccinations for homebound individuals who cannot leave their home to get to a vaccination site.
Due to logistical considerations around vaccine expiration while in transit, people receiving in-home vaccinations will be grouped based on geography, and not on a first-come, first-serve basis. It may take individuals several weeks to get an in-home vaccination due to these logistical challenges. For individuals who need assistance preregistering or scheduling an appointment at a vaccination site, please refer to 2-1-1 (877-211-6277).
