Massachusetts Homebound Vaccination Program

The Commonwealth is working with local Boards of Health and developed a statewide program to offer in-home vaccinations for homebound individuals who cannot leave their home to get to a vaccination site.

Eligibility for Massachusetts Homebound Vaccination Program

In-home vaccinations are for homebound individuals who are not able to leave their home to get to a vaccination site, even with assistance. These individuals require either:

  1. Ambulance or two-person assistance to leave the home, or
  2. Are not able to leave the home for medical appointments under normal circumstances, or
  3. Have considerable difficulty and/or require significant support to leave the home for medical appointments.

How to Connect with the Massachusetts Homebound Vaccination Program

Organizations who support individuals who are homebound and may require an in-home vaccination may be referred to the State Homebound Vaccination Central Intake Line, operated by MassOptions, to be screened for appropriateness for an in-home vaccine and connected to resources to schedule a vaccination.

Homebound Vaccination Program Central Intake Line
1-833-983-0485
Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The Homebound Vaccination Program Central Intake Line is available in English and Spanish and will have translators available to support residents in approximately 100 additional languages
