Mass. Teachers, School Employees Now Eligible To Get COVID Vaccine

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) —Educators for grades K-12, child care workers, and other school staff in Massachusetts became eligible to get the coronavirus vaccine on Thursday.

This includes anyone that is “employed on a full or part-time basis by public pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools, Head Start and Early Head Start programs, and those who work as or for licensed childcare providers, including center-based and family care providers,” according to the state’s vaccine website.

Anyone in this group can book an appointment through Massachusetts’ COVID-19 Vaccine Finder.

The state has also designated four days at the seven mass vaccination sites that will be for teachers only. Those days will be Saturday March 27, Saturday April 3, Saturday April 10, and Sunday April 11.

Thursday was also the last day that appointments at mass vaccination sites were available to be booked “directly online through providers’ scheduling websites," according to the state.

A new pre-registration system for vaccination appointments is set to go online on Friday. After eligible residents fill out a form online, they will be notified when an appointment becomes available.
