Joslin does not have a supply of COVID-19 vaccine and therefore we are unable to offer it to patients.
However, the vaccines are now widely available to anyone over the age of 6 months and both Joslin providers and the CDC strongly recommend that anyone over the age of 6 months get a vaccine and subsequent boosters as recommended.
If you have not received a vaccine or booster, you are encouraged to do so. More information on vaccines and boosters may be found on the Massachusetts Department of Public Health website.
If you do not live in Massachusetts, you must check your state's public health website for vaccination information.
In addition, Massachusetts has a call center for people 75+. Dial 2-1-1 and follow the prompts.
We strongly encourage you to get the vaccine or booster. Please see the CDC’s website for extensive information on the COVID-19 vaccines.
