MA COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Mass. to return to Step 2 of Phase 3 on March 1, advance to Step 1 of Phase 4 on March 22

February 17 Vaccine Update:
The state will announce today that starting tomorrow 2/18, they are opening up registration for ages 65+ as well as individuals with 2 or more co-morbidities.  They also let us know that they are going to streamline the vaccine supply to the larger Mass Vaccination Sites (Gillette, etc.) and communities of higher need.  This means we will not receive any vaccine to provide 1st doses here in Sharon.

We will receive the 2nd dose for the 100 residents who received their vaccine at the Community Center on February 4th.  The 2nd clinic is scheduled for March 4th.

We are going to take down the Pre-Registration but will continue to provide updates on the Town of Sharon Website as well as social media.  If you need help registering or getting to a Mass Vaccination Site, please let us know by calling (781) 784-1514.


February 16 Vaccine Update: 
Sharon did not receive doses of COVID-19 vaccine this week.  The Health Department requested doses for next week and will continue to request each week on behalf of our residents.  If you are 75 years old or older, please consider signing up to receive your vaccine at another location.  If you need assistance registering or need a ride to a vaccine clinic, please call the Sharon Health Department Vaccine Line at (781) 784-1514. 

Avoid Covid-19 Vaccination Scams

There are false claims regarding access to the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are contacted in any way by someone saying they can provide early access to the vaccine, it’s a scam. Vaccine information will be disseminated through official channels.
 
Be sure to vet any person calling to schedule a vaccine for them. The most important thing you can do is go to a trusted source of information that you have navigated to yourself.
 
If the Town calls those who pre-registered using the online form on the town’s website, we will specifically identify as representatives from the Town. If you want to call us back at the main Town phone number (781-784-1500), we will provide a direct extension so folks can confirm we are who we say we are.
 
 

Answer the call and help stop the spread of COVID-19

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, along with Partners In Health, has created the COVID-19 Community Tracing Collaborative. The program focuses on reaching out to the contacts of confirmed positive COVID-19 patients to help others who have been potentially exposed to the virus. When the MA COVID Team calls, you can do your part by answering the phone and providing helpful information that will help flatten and reduce the curve in Massachusetts. Phone calls will use the prefix 833 and 857 and your phone will say the call is from “MA COVID Team.” Calls will be made daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
