If you plan to get vaccinated at your doctor’s they may not have vaccine yet. The state suggests you wait to call them rather than overwhelm them with calls now.


Pharmacies and other Locations

CVS, Walgreen, Star Market, and Wegmans will offer vaccinations in and near Cambridge.


Transportation

Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) is offering free transportation, via one of SCES’ transportation providers, for local older adults to nearby COVID-19 vaccination sites.
SCES is encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated. We do not want transportation to be an obstacle for the people we serve. If you are 75 and up from Cambridge or Somerville, and you need a ride to your vaccination site, please give us a call!
We ask that you call well ahead of the appointment, so that we can connect you with a transportation option, and you can plan the most convenient travel time for yourself. Masks will be required during transportation.
For more information about the SCES vaccination transportation program, or to register for a ride, call SCES at 617-628-2601 or email here.
(Rides will be offered to those 65-74 when they become eligible.)


Scams

With the widespread concern about finding and getting a vaccine, some scammers are looking for ways to steal money and gather personal information that can be sold for profit.

There are reports of scammers taking money in exchange for fake COVID-19 vaccine reservations. No legitimate organizations will charge you for making a reservation. According to AARP, “Be wary of websites with pop-up ads for a vaccine appointment.”

In Massachusetts, as soon as the state’s new vaccination website went up, some scam sites appeared as well. Make sure you are on a legitimate site before entering your personal information. Only follow links from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or other reputable sites.
