BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Dozens of CVS locations across the Commonwealth are now offering vaccine appointments for those who are eligible to get their Covid-19 shot.
The online appointment system to get the vaccine at a participating CVS location opened to the public on Thursday. The company has said that it will not provide a list of the vaccine locations because the roster will be continually changing based on how much supply they receive.
Phase II currently allows those ages 75 and older to get vaccinated against the virus. The phase will later expand to those 65 years and older, people with two or more high-risk conditions and certain essential workers, but there is no official date for when that will happen.
Gov. Baker also announced a new policy this week in which caregivers or companions of those ages 75 and older can also get vaccinated on the same day while accompanying seniors to their appointment.
CVS is expected to post new appointments online each day for their list of eligible pharmacies. Those seeking a vaccine who walk-in without an appointment will not be able to receive a shot.
Along with CVS, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker's administration has said tens of thousands of new appointments are being posted for mass vaccination sites across the state this week.
The mass vaccination sites are located at Fenway Park, Gilette Stadium, the DoubleTree Hotel in Danvers, the Eastfield Mall in Springfield and the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury.
Governor Baker also announced two more mass sites coming to the state this month in Natick and Dartmouth.
