Caregiver Vaccines: On 2/10, Governor Baker announced a new policy that will allow a caregiver to receive a vaccination at the same time as their loved one who is 75+. Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative sites DO have the capacity to accommodate this type of companion appointments. Please click the button below for more information.
Individuals in the current phase group may now register online for the vaccine.
