The Town of North Reading Board of Health / Health Department has been authorized to administer 100 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination beginning the week of February 8, 2021. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has limited vaccination distribution to the Health Department’s clinic to 100 doses per week throughout the month of February.
Beginning on Monday, February 8, 2021 at 9:00 AM and every Monday at 9:00 AM for the month of February 2021, the Phase II Priority Group of adults 75 and older will be able to go onto the North Reading Health Department website at https://www.northreadingma.gov/health-department/pages/covid-19-vaccine-localstate-prepmod-registration and access a link to register for an appointment for the COVID 19 vaccination. The first Phase II vaccination clinic is scheduled to be held on Wednesday February 10, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 1:15 PM and every Tuesday and Thursday thereafter in February from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Hillview Country Club, 149 North Street, North Reading, Massachusetts 01864.
North Reading Health Department COVID-19 vaccination appointments may be scheduled online only. All registration for COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be via PrepMod, a Massachusetts Department of Public Health vaccination clinic registration module. Please seek assistance from family, friends, or neighbors if you are having difficulty registering for an appointment. Residents in need of other assistance may call the Edith O’Leary Senior Center at 978-664-5600 for assistance registering online. Due to the amount of time required to register, residents calling the Senior Center are advised that wait times may be significant. More information regarding a statewide telephone number to make appointments will be made available once it is provided to the Health Department. Please do not call the North Reading Health Department as staff are unable to register individuals for vaccination.
Due to the limited supply of vaccines being made available to North Reading, the Health Department strongly encourages North Reading residents to register for an appointment at another clinic in Massachusetts if appointments at the Hillview clinic are unavailable. Registration for clinics statewide may be found at www.maimmunizations.org. Rides may be arranged by calling Mystic Valley Elder Services at 781-324-7705.
