Atrius Health COVID-19 Vaccine Availability Update
Updated Thursday, February 25, 2021.
How and where can I schedule an appointment at Atrius Health?
Atrius Health is receiving a very limited amount of vaccine from the state each week. We add appointments to MyHealth (our patient portal) whenever we get vaccine. We also contact groups of eligible patients by text, phone call, and MyHealth message, to invite them to book appointments on MyHealth. Due to high demand and limited vaccine supply, appointments are booking very quickly. If you are eligible to be vaccinated, we invite you to check myhealth.atriushealth.org frequently to see if any appointments become available. Unfortunately, vaccine does not arrive according to a specific schedule, so we cannot predict when appointments will be added. The state has directed us to offer vaccine through regional locations. Our current vaccination locations are in our practices in Boston (Kenmore only), Chelmsford, Norwood, and Plymouth. We expect to operate under a regional model for the foreseeable future. We may add a few additional sites as vaccine supply increases.
Where else can I get vaccinated?
The state is sending most vaccine supply to mass vaccination sites, retail pharmacies, and other regional locations. You may be able to find an appointment sooner at one of these higher volume locations. We want you to get vaccinated and recommend you look into all available options. Visit the state website at www.mass.gov/COVIDvaccine or use the search tool at https://vaxfinder.mass.gov to find appointments at other locations. People without internet access can call 2-1-1- for assistance by phone.
Can I get on a waitlist at Atrius Health?
If you are eligible to be vaccinated, have searched on MyHealth and cannot find an appointment, you may want to add yourself to a waitlist. It is important to know that you are not guaranteed an appointment by adding your name to the waitlist. The MyHealth waitlist function works on a first-come, first-served basis. When an appointment becomes available at your desired location, it is offered to 5 eligible people on the waitlist at the same time. The appointment is given to the person who logs in first and accepts the offer. If no one claims the appointment during a 3-hour window, it will be offered to another group of 5 people on the waitlist. This will continue as long as there are available appointments. If you wish to be added to the MyHealth waitlist, please follow either of these paths:
- On your MyChart Mobile App: Log in and on the home screen, click “Questionnaires” then “COVID-19 Immunization Wait List.”
- On the MyHealth Website: Log in and on the home screen, click on the “Health” icon at the top, “Questionnaires,” and then “COVID-19 Immunization Wait List.”
Where can children who are ages 16 and 17 with qualifying medical conditions get vaccinated?
Atrius Health only has Moderna vaccine, which is approved for people 18 and older. Pfizer vaccine is currently the only vaccine brand approved for 16- and 17-year-olds. Use the state vaccine finder to search vaccination locations by vaccine brand. Fenway Park, Reggie Lewis Center, and Marshfield Fairgrounds are among the sites currently offering Pfizer.
Visit our COVID-19 FAQs for more information. Our care teams are committed to vaccinating as many patients as we can based on the amount of vaccine we receive in the weeks ahead. We highly encourage patients to get vaccinated, whether that occurs at Atrius Health or another location.
